    Hello, well I have had the new set for about a day and it looks great. However after reading the manual it states that the recommended viewing for wide-screen format is natural mode. However when I select this mode when watching a DVD (spiderman) from my Dennon 1600- which is also new there are gray letter boxes on the right and left sides and it appears to be stretching the wide screen pic in to a 4x3. theater 1-3 and full fills the screen with different levels of streching. Is this normal?

    Other than this the set awesome and has no speaker his as I have read on here in the past

    Well from what I can tell this is normal and the Toshiba manual is confusing. Full mode is the mode to use! BTW Ice age is on right now and it looks fan-frigin-tastic!

    In Short the modes to use are as follows:

    Full mode: Anamorphic DVD
    Theater Wide 1: 4x3
    Theater Wide 2: Cropped Anamorphic DVD (get rid of upper and lower black on higher aspect ratios)
    Theater Wide 3: Don't use it much
    Natural: Gray Bar 4:3 or Full Screen HIGH Def
