    Is there anyway on the Panasonic RP91 to shrink the video being displayed while watching VCDs that have a cropped look to them (probably due to them being made from sources with resolution of 352x288, rather than 320x240). It's a bit aggravating to watch the video being so blown up so much on the conventional 4:3 RPTV I have. I confess this problem is probably due to me making VCDs out of PAL material that I've downloaded.

    Just a followup: I did in fact have a few video clips in the PAL format (352x288, 25fps), so I used some nifty video file converters, VCDHelp is the place to go to get the stuff. Once I re-encoded the video clips into 320x240, 29.97 fps), the video clips look "correct" again when I burned them on a VCD. I tried the NTSC 352x240 setting, but it didn't quite look right to me, so I opted for 320x240.
