    If you are watching 4:3 display (whether it be DVD or broadcast) on a 16:9 set (without streching), is there some formula to determine the equivalent viewing area that would correlate to a regular 4:3 set?

    Meaning, if I watch a 4:3 DVD on a 42" 16:9, what size 4:3 set would that be equal to.
