    I finally managed to obtain a service manual and I figured this one out! Many people have complained about how you can't watch ESPN or play Xbox games in full 4:3 36" 1080i mode because there is no "off" option on the vertical compression. I have discovered a workaround:

    In the service menu, goto the 2170D_3 section. Then simply find the setting "JUMP" and switch it from 1 to 0. Write it to memory and you're done.

    The annoying thing about my fix is you have to do it every time you switch back and forth. Does anybody know a way to simply unlock the menu so that it doesn't just automatically switch? The ID values aren't even explained really in the service manual. Let me know if anybody figures this out. I can't believe sony didn't ship the TV with an "off" switch on the vertical compression. Good thing the TV's picture/sound quality more than make up for it's shortcomings.

    I don't believe that there is any such thing as a 4:3 1080i mode.  The 1080i mode is specifically for 16:9 HDTV.  I know what you mean about ESPN.  I find the fact that they stretch the picture for a 4:3 source horizontally to fill the screen to be very annoying.  The problem is that most of their programming is from standard 4:3 sources.  Ocassionaly, they do use a 16:9 source.  One example was Wimbleton.

    If you check the ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX HDTV channels, you will see vertical bars on each side during standard 4:3 programming.

    Ragarding your Xbox, I believe that your problem is that you don't have it configured for the 16:9 mode.

    jehill, while you are mostly correct, you are wrong about there being no 1080i FULL mode. It's reffered to specifically in the service manual, and in fact, without the the vertical compression, it would be the norm. It's VERY useful for me since it allows me to play xbox games in full 720p or 1080i yet in 4:3 aspect. Yes, 1080i/720p were both designed for 16:9, and I assume that's why sony defaulted the setting, but I find it very irritating they didn't give a button to turn off the v-compression, and a service menu trip every time I want to use it is terrible. My old TV, an Advent 27" HDTV let me switch it with a simple button on the mode that switched between 4:3 and 16:9.


    So really, if anybody understands the ID tags, please let me know.

    -Zack
