    Just purchased a Panasonic PT-56DLX75 DLP TV. I also have a progressive scan Toshiba SD-K741SU DVD player connected to the TV via component cables.

    Picture looks great, yet I'm seeing a few issues (nothing critical):

    1. Playing the Star Wars Episode III and The Incredibles DVD, I'm still seeing the letterbox format. I configured my DVD player to set the display as "16:9 Widescreen", yet I'm still seeing the black bars on the top and bottom of the screen.

    2. ESPNews. The ticker seems to cut off on the left and right edges of the screen. Is this normal for this channel?

    Any help would be great!

    Anything wider than 16:9 (1.78:1) will still have black bars.

    You should be able to achieve ESPN with your aspect control to see the entire picture.
