    Well, I'm loving my new FS100's 16:9 configuration. Watching the widescreen version of Ice Age in this mode is absolutely unbelievable.

    Question: every time I switch to TV from DVD, the FS100 loses the 16:9 format and I have to reset it when I return to DVD (which is on Video 4, via component cable). Am I doing something wrong? Should I be able to save this configuration so that it remains 16:9 when I switch to Video 4? Granted, I won't always want this setting when watching a DVD, but 90% of the DVDs that I watch are widescreen (and, no, I haven't noticed the "squish" that some people have after I set my DVD player to 16:9 as well).

    I think this page has some info... when you enter the service menu and save a certain option, the 16:9 mode will always be "on" in Video4.


    I just use a macro on my remote to step through the menu and enable 16:9 when I want to use the feature.

    There may be a way to do it in the service menu. I don't know it though.

    A macro is a sequence of commands programmed onto one button on a capable remote control. A macro can be programmed to go through all the steps needed to turn on the squeeze with only one push f a button if you have a remote with macro capabilities.

    I don't have to worry about this as my Sony does the squeeze automatically when needed. It's a great feature. Do a search all over the net and you may find how to set your video 4 to default to 16x9 enhanced mode.
