    I set my DVD to output in widescreen and progressive mode on and my TV is set to 16:9 Auto but if I switch 16:9 to on it crunches the bars even more, is that how its supposed to work? Not sure of the proper setup here.

    Sony KV-36HS500

    Thanks in advance

    It's possible your TV does not auto squeeze a progressive signal but only an interlaced one.

    Make sure you are set to 16x9 output on your DVD player. You should see it autosqueeze when you play an anamorphic DVD. It's very important that you use an anamorphic DVD or one that says "enhanced for 16x9 televisions" on the back cover.

    Test in in interlaced mode first. If it works propperly, try it again in progressive scan. If it does not squeeze (picture will look tall and thin) then you have a problem. Your TV does not autosqueeze a progressive signal. You will have to do it manually or set up a macro on a capable remote to do it in one press of a button.

    My 32HV600 does it automatically with my panasonic CP72 PS player. I was afraid it might not as I have heard that the 4x3 sony RPTV's do not but it does so I am releived. Mabe the HS models differ from the XBR as my HV is basically the XBR.

    What player do you have?

    I have a phillips 724 pro scan. I dont think my tv is auto detecting it. When in pro scan it will come up with black bars but when I manually put it in 16:9 I seem to get another smaller set of black bars or slightly grey bars and the picture gets slightly smaller vertically. It looks great. But is this what should happen.

    I tried output in interlace and the same thing happens, so should I always turn on 16:9?


    Thanks for the reply, as I just bought the tv friday

    Mike

    unless the DVD is "anamorphic" the actual picture is 4:3 and your DVD player should be set to 4:3, and the TV to auto.

    THe only way to really get a full resolution 16:9 image is to view only anamorphic DVD's

    Sandor,
    The TV displays the same picture on non anamorphic DVD's wether the player is set to 4x3 or 16x9. There is no need to switch back and forth if you have the 16x9 enhanced mode on your TV.

    Yes it will switch automatically but, the image is not really the same. If the DVD is non-anamorphic, the TV will stay in 4:3 mode, and in effect you are only using 2/3 of the pixels to display the image. 1/3 is wasted on black bars. If the DVD is anamorphic, the TV automatically switches to 16:9 but in doing so, the full resolution of the television is used to display the 16:9 image, in effect greatly increasing the resolution of the image.
