    I am in the market to spend around $1200 on an HDTV.

    I really love the picture on the Sony KV-32HS510.

    BUT, I also know that true HD is Widescreen, so im in a pickle on what to do.

    I watch A LOT of cable TV, and I know that most programs are shown in 4:3. But I also have over 200 dvds..*sigh* "what to do?"

    A quesiton about the Sony: I know it has 16:9 enhanced mode, so when I watch something that IS 16:9 on the 4:3 set, do i HAVE to put it on 16:9 ENHANCED to get eh best picture, or will it do in automatically?

    Any help would be appreciated. Im sure ill chime in with more questions soon.

    Thanks,
    Anthony

    Anthony, I believe the Sony HS510 autodetects 16:9-flagged DVDs. Some of the NTSC-only WEGAs, however, require manual selection of the 16:9 mode. Either way, it's just a click of the remote if the set doesn't autodetect. No biggie.
