Hi, My hubby is a regular on this board - I am not. We are having an argument over the picture format on our widescreen TVs. They are great for DVDs and some HD channels on digital cable. But for most TV channels, the picture is stretched sideways to fit the TV, making people short and fat and even growing their noses when they turn their heads sideways. It is very irritating to watch in this format - especially hockey games which give me motion sickness as the camera pans around quickly and the ice and players are constantly stretched one way and then another. He insisted I was seeing things and I ignored it for years as his home theatre system was in the basement. But now he went out and bought an LCD widescreen for the main living room - I can't even sit in the kitchen without seeing it! I know there is a way to set up the picture so this doesn't happen - you don't see it this way at the stores. Please explain to him that stretching the picture IS distortion and tell him how to fix it so the TV is watchable. They may be great for watching movies, but 9 times out of 10, I'm just watching sit coms or news up here and now I can't even do that! Please help!!!
