    I am a little confused on the wide viewing on this tv. I have the HK DVD50 set-up as widescreen but, the component video input on the widescreen is showing it in 4x3 with gray bars on both sides. What is the correct viewing mode for dvds on this tv? Is it normal(4x3), full, wide or wide zoom? Let me know what your set-up is on this tv. I am talking whether the dvd is anamorphic 2:35 or non-anamorphic.


    Thanks,

    Ian B

    The KP57-HW40 should auto-select Full mode when playing anamorphic DVDs of any aspect ratio (1:78, 1:85, 2:35, etc.). Try going to Full mode with anamorphic DVDs and see if they look right.

    It's curious that your set is not auto-selecting Full, even though it sounds like your player is set up right. You're sure it's set to "16:9 Widescreen"??? What DVD(s) are you checking this with?

    Non-anamorphic DVDs will probably look best in Zoom mode.

    Can someone call me after 9p.m. central time tonight and walk me through it. It may be easier than posting and replying back and forth.

    Thanks,
