I just recently bought a 16x9 TV and a progressive scan DVD. In the Sony DVD player set up it gives you 3 options “4x3 Letterbox” 4x3 Pan/Scan” & “16x9.” So I select 16x9. Now when I turn the movie on. Lets say “Kill Bill” it is suppose to be presented in 2.35. Which would mean in “normal” mode on my TV it should still be letter boxed. But it isn’t. In normal mode it crops off the sides to fit what looks to be a 4x3 TV. If I hit “zoom” it takes the picture and makes it fit my 16x9 but cutting off the front and bottom of the picture. Now if I set the DVD player up in 4x3 Letterbox and I watch the movie in “normal” it shows the movie in its 2.35 aspect ratio but it doesn’t fill the 16x9 Frame. So I then hit zoom and make it fit the 16x9 TV wile preserving the aspect ratio. Is this what you’re suppose to do? I would have assumed when you set your DVD player to 16x9 it would still preserve the aspect ratio. Because the only way I found to preserve the aspect ratio is setting the DVD player for 4x3 Letterbox and Zooming it on my16x9 TV.
