First of all, does it make a huge difference on a 27" TV?? I can appreciate that on a 36" or even a 32", you could definitely see the difference. The reason I ask is because I'm thinking of selling my 24" Tau to a friend and purchasing a 27" Sony Secondly, does the 16x9 mode do anything for non-anamorphic dvds? since your dvd player is set in widscreen mode, what happens when you put in a non-anamorphic dvd? will the player stretch it? or will the player keep it at the proper mode? and will the TV compress it even more? or have no effect?
