had my philips 30pf9975 LCD TV for two days now. Watching Eastenders, my wife commented on how the characters looked too tall. This is watching through Sky, with the TV on 'widescreen', which just expands the picture sideways. I compared with analogue, and she was right. If I choose the oddly named '16:9', they look OK, but there are black bars at the top and bottom. Hmm. So I checked the manual. No mention. So then I checked the specs. 1280x768 panel. 16:9 would be 1280x720 This is a 16:9.6 panel!!! Its also effectively not a 30" diagonal, as watching in the correct aspect ratio for 16:9 results in a smaller vertical image, so you probably lose about 1" from the diagonal. Now, I'm pretty upset. The difference isn't huge, but surely this set is being sold as a 'widescreen' set, which is commonly held to mean 16:9. My sky box is outputting 16:9 TV, which I expect to fill my TV without unnecessary distortion. So either I live with squashed images, or have bars on the top and bottom of every program. Anybody else got any comments, or any other TVs being sold to the public on false pretences!?
