I keep trying to convince myself to get a 16:9 RPTV (specifically a Toshiba 57H81). Recently, I went into my BB with a VHS tape with various sports, mostly racing and baseball and football. When watching this tape using a composite input, the only mode I found satisfactory was the Theaterwide 2 mode which zooms but does not distort the image. The problem with this mode is that on this TV, the top and bottom "stats area" was cut off. This means that any scrolling scores, stats and in the nascar race, the car positions, were cut off and unreadable. Since then, I have since been told by a dealer that the TV I was using must have had some bad overscan and that a properly adjusted 57H81 does not have the top and bottom stats cut off while using Theatermode 2. So, my question is, to all of you 16:9 owners, does the zoom mode cut off the stat bars on your TV sets? ------------------ Take Care, merc ---------------- DFAST, 5C, DVI, HDCP, SafeAudio, Macrovision and Lewinski!!!
