I'm having some problems (I think?) with my new TV and DVD player. Essentially, my question is this: when watching widescreen DVD's outputted to a widescreen TV, which device is "in charge" of removing the letterboxing? The long version: I recently purchased a new RP TV (Philips 55PP9502) and Progressive Scan DVD player (Philips DVDQ50AT). The DVD player is connected to the TV using its progressive outputs, and on of the TV's HD inputs (AV4). I have set the DVD player's format to 16:9. My understanding was that with this setup, the signal coming from the DVD player would be w/o the letterboxing. However, this is not the case. Since the TV's built-in format adjustments do not function on the HD input (as it expects the external unit to do this) I'm stuck with the letterboxing. My major concern is burn in. I can use the non-progressive outputs on the DVD player to connect to the non-HD inputs on the TV, and let the TV do the adjustment, but this sort of defeats the purpose of having a progressive scan player! I tried to call Philips support, but it was not helpful to say the least. They kept telling me that DVD's I'm using did not support 16:9, but from what I can see they do. I've looked at the Lord of the Rings set, the Star Trek: First Contact (which says that it's enhanced for 16:9), and another DVD that said it was "anamorphic widescreen". I had the same result on each, so I don't think it's the DVD's that are causing the problem. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated! I'm really at a loss here to figure out what my problem is. Should the DVD player be sending a non-letterboxed signal, or should the TV be adjusting the bars on the HD input?
