Okay, I am new at this and have a couple of questions regarding my inital try of setting up my system. I have a Toshiba 65hx81 and just purchased a Toshiba sd5700 DVD player(improving on my Toshiba sd3205). I have been reading that progressive scan is better than the internal processing on my set. I hope that this is true, because I have yet to receive the new DVD player. What I have noticed is the clarity of the DVD through the HD conncetions(the red,green,blue). I have also noticed that some of my 16x9 DVDs seem to still show black bars on my set. My current DVD player(sd3205) is set up for 16x9 and I am using the widescreen setting on my set. Some DVDs are filling the whole screen, while others are leaving the black bars. They are only a couple of inches on top and bottom, but is this normal? I was under the impression that all widescreen formatted DVDs would fill the entire picture on a 16x9 set. I also purchased the Avia calibration DVD and will be trying to perfect the picture as best as possible. There are no local specialists for this. Has anyone seen the difference with the Avia? Many thanks on and help and I am looking forward to getting this system up and running.
