I visited my local Sears today to check out the Song Wega KV-36FV27. My question pertains to the squeeze trick on the set. I talked one of the salesmen into bringing out a DVD player and hooking it up (he came out with a very cheap one, and hooked it up via S-Video) so I could check out the squeeze trick, which I had never seen before. The movie the guy had available was a copy of Batman and Robin (which I know is anamorphic, after checking amazon.com just now). I set the DVD player to 16:9, then started the movie. The set was on "Auto" for 16:9 Compression. The picture came up as a stretched image, ie "uncompressed anamorphic". Confused, I went into the set's menu and put the compression to "ON", which then properly compressed the image. Then, curious if the Compression setting "stuck" I cycled through and it went back to "Auto" (ie, uncompressed). So, my questions are: 1. Why didn't the set properly squeeze when set on "Auto"? Does the DVD player have to send out a "packet of info" to inform the set that the image is anamorphic? 2. What do non-anamorphic discs do when the player is set to 16:9? 3. What do 4:3 material discs do when the player is set to 16:9? 4. Is there a way to lock individual inputs into the squeeze mode? Based on the responses to Q2 and Q3, I'd like to just set the component video input to compressed and be done with it... Aside, I had always wondered the difference between the KV-series and FS-series, it looks to me (based simply on the Pocahontas video they were playing), that the comb filter they use on the KV- is superior, in addition the FS-series lacks the front S-Video input that the KV- has. I had thought that the KV- was a lighter color, but the set was the same color as the FS-. The speaker placement on the KV- is a bit better looking IMHO.
