    I have a 36" Toshiba direct view and was wondering if the new sony xbr 4:3 tv's are worth the upgrade. I'm wondering mostly if the ability to view anamophic widescreen is really any good on these sets. How would i get the full 16:9 image on a 4:3 set?

    Sean,

    I have the 32" XBR.

    Anamorphic DVDs are shown with a letterbox, but at full resolution.

    It is my understanding the same is true for WS Hidef material, but I don't have a HD tuner yet.

    Peter
