    I own a KV-27 FS100 which has the 16:9 squeeze mode. Tremendous resolution on DVD's. Thank you Sony.

    I'm thinking of dabbling with over-the-air HDTV, but before I buy a box and antenna I've got a simple question:

    Will the 16:9 squeeze provide HDTV resolution in such a setup with my KV-27 FS100? Or is that trick just for DVD's?

    I'm sorry to say that your particular model monitor will not be able to display an HD signal.

    However, if it did have the capability, the answer to your question would be yes.....HD (1080i) signals are broadcast in the "16:9" format.

    Thanks NiteHawk.....glad I bought the cheap TV for the office, but it would have been a happy surprise to find it could trick out the HD.

    Actually, whether or not you can use HDTV just depends on whether the box will down-convert and output the picture in 480i mode, which is what you're seeing from your DVD player.
