    Has anyone heard what will be replacing this set? Yes, I know it's 4:3, but unless I can convince my wife otherwise, that is what I may be going with since the majority of my family's viewing is OTA and DirecTV.
    On a side note, if you have the 50H81,is the stretch mode to view this type of broadcasting (to fill the screen-preventing burn-in) acceptable? i.e.,not fat and squatty or vice versa?

    I have the 57H81 and I noticed the wide screen format for 4:3 signals much better than most of the other sets. I have seen some awful looking "stretches" out there. You're hard pressed to notice an unnatural look with most all types of scenes.

    Mike-
    Thanks, I appreciate your input [​IMG]
    Anyone else care to weigh in on this? I'm still looking to find out if someone knows any info on the new 4:3 model that will replace the -71.
    Thanks in advance
