Hey guys, I'm interested in picking up a new television this weekend. I'm looking to go widescreen and have a question about how widescreen will translate to a 4:3 picture. I know from playing around with the various models that a 4:3 picture on a 16:9 television will have bars on each side of the screen to mimic the 4:3 ratio and I understand that a DVD player properly configured in the menu to work on a 16:9 screen will display everything widescreen to properly fit the 1.78:1 aspect ratio of the set. My question is this: suppose I'm watching a television show that is shot in widescreen, will a widescreen television properly display this show in the 16:9 format and drop the bars on each side of the screen? I ask, because I was looking at Tv's yesterday. The television I was looking at was displaying the store video loop and it displayed it with bars on each side of the set as though the content was 4:3. I knew this was normal until it got to a scene which was visibly widescreen. The television didn't seem to pick up on this and continued displaying the segment with black bars on top and bottom like a letterboxed DVD, and grey bars on the sides of the screen like it was tuned into 4:3 programming. Would this be normal or was it just an improperly configured floor model? Do these newer widescreen televisions have to set up in the menus to distinguish between 4:3 and 16:9? Thanks!
