    I have a Sony WEGA 32FV26 with the automatic "squeeze" trick enabled. When my WEGA squeezes the picture, do you loose a little bit of the viewable area? It seems like when it squeezes, I lost about an inch or so from the top and bottom of the picture.
    Is this normal?

    I haven't seen it but it is understandable. The TV probably tried to trim the ragged edges off the top and bottom (normally hidden by overscan) but trimmed off too much using electronic matting (blackened more than scan lines 484-525). There may be a service mode adjustment for this.

    Whenever I "squeeze" the picture I always lose some viewing area. I believe the "squeeze" trick takes all the pixels and condenses them into a specific area in hopes of creating a more defined picture. I'm sure I explained that wrong but those are my thoughts.
