Ok, I've got this dvd player hooked to the Toshiba TW40X81 Widescreen HDTV: When I pop in the Region 4 Friends DVD, which is 4:3, here's what happens: When I select 16:9 Auto for the Picture Mode, it stretches the picture to fill the screen. When I select 16:9 Normal, it displays the picture in 4:3 mode with black bars on the side. Now, when I pop in The Abyss, which is non-anamorphic, here's what happens: When I select 16:9 Auto, I get huge black bars on the top and bottom, which I believe is correct for the non-anamorphic dvd. Yet, when I set the player to 16:9 normal, I get small black bars on the top and bottom, like an anamorphic picture, and it looks damn good. No change on anamorphic disks. I wonder which setting is best? I like the effect it has on The Abyss, but I also like the way it stretches the Friends disks to fill the screen. Oh, and by the way, for some reason, no matter what screen saver mode I have it set to, it won't activate when I have a dvd paused. Any idea why?
