OK, Heres the story. I was at my local hi-fi store yesterday and was looking at a 32XBR450 they had. Looked like crap through their set up so I had them direct-connect a Pani RP91 via component cables and play a DVD for me. Much better, but while playing the 5th element superbit(2.35:1 ratio movie), the picture was stretched to ~1.77:1, everything looked tall and thin but looked very sharp and had high resolution, I told him the XBR's don't autosqueeze a progressive signal and told him to turn the progressive off. This fixed the ratio to normal but the picture looked like total crap. Turn the progressive back on and try to set the squeeze to "on" from the TV menu. This also fixed the ratio but looked like crap as well. We couldn't get the picture to look good in the OAR. We ended up setting the DVD player to output 4x3 and this made the picture much better. What gives??? Can you not use the squeeze at all with a progressive picture? Why did we have to set the DVD player to output 4x3 to get full resolution and the OAR. I don't understand. Shouldn't the player remain on 16x9 output while playing widescreen DVD's on a squeeze enabled TV? I would have though: set DVD player to 16x9 and output progressive scan, enable the TV's squeeze from the menu, and this should have the correct aspect ratio and provide the best resolution but doing this made the picture look horrible. Why?
