My tv is a HDTV despite that it is apparently 4:3 aspect ration. (The actual measured screen is 29inches wide and 22 inches high). I gathered from the threads that this is unusual as most HDTV's are widescreen. My question is, given my situation, when I connect my progressive scan dvd, what type of dvd's should I be buying. After reading the threads I kind of understand the concept that the better thing from a movie buff's POV is to have everything the director wanted on screen, on screen. That makes sense, so I understand that I should be seeing black bars on the top and bottom to make the picture rectangular BUT here is where I'm confused...if I had a rectangular screen I'd just buy Wide Screen dvd's wherever possible...fine. But since I don't have a rectangular screen and there is this whole thing about scan lines being squeezed in or out and the picture being affected by the formatting and reformatting vs not wanting the sides cropped so that the picture is square, should I buy Full Screen so that the picture quality stays in keeping with my HDTV or do I buy WS and will the picture still be HD? The dvd player is an Onkyo DV SP300. Thanks and I ask for your patience.
