Newbie here, sorry if this question has been asked a thousand times. I recently bought a Sony Wega KV-32FS100 32" TV and I was wondering about the vertical compression that it comes with. I was watching the Lord of the Rings Extended Version (widescreen) and decided to turn on the 16:9 vertical compression because I read that it would increase the resolution. Well, the resolution was increased and it looked great except that everything was scrunched down and everything was shorter and fatter than it should have been. It doesn't seem like this is such a great option if it distorts the picture. Am I doing something wrong or does it have something to do with my DVD player or my connection? I have a Toshiba single disc DVD player currently connected with a S-video cable. Also, the UHF/VHF connector does not accept my attenna. The small wire in the middle of the attenna connector won't fit in the hole in the middle of the connection in the back of the TV. Has anyone ever heard of this and is there anything I can do? Thanks.

That's right. Set the DVD player to 16x9 wide mode in the dvd menu display options. This only works with anamorphic DVD's.
