    I need to write a simple setup guide for my site that explains how to setup a widescreen TV so that all the content is viewed in the proper modes. In otherwords, movies that are shot in widescreen are displayed with black bars, and not stretched, and programs made for TV and movies shot prior to 1950 are shown in windowbox mode, so that nothing is stretched. After all, the site is pro OAR, not just pro widescreen. The name is just a portion of what the site is about. But this critical info is missing, and a lot of people have asked me about it, so I want to put it up. But I don't have an hdtv, or even a digital tv, so I am clueless when it comes to this sort of stuff. If you guys would help me figure out what I need to include, that would be excellent. I would like the page to be one page or less of text and graphics.

    If you guys know of a page that already explains all this, that I could just link to, that would be good too.
