I recently purchased a 36XBR450 and absolutely love it, however I have some general questions. 1. When viewing an anamorphic DVD there are small dark gray bars (~2in. in size & lighter than the normal black bars) at the top and bottom of the picture. They are not distracting but certainly noticeable. Is this normal? I am using a Sony DVP-S7000 set in 16x9 mode and the XBR450 is set to auto 16x9. 2. I can see no difference in the progressive modes (Interlaced, Progressive and Cinemotion). Are there instances where one mode is more suitable than the other? Or is there something wrong with the progressive mode operation?
