Hi, This is an issue I've thought about for quite a while but I've never heard any real comments. To the point..... I have two DD/DTS set ups, 1 via a JVC 16:9 TV which is new and another with an older but expensive 29" 4:3 Panasonic. Now I prefer watching the Widescreen DVDs on the 4:3, the picture is lovely and basically a breath of fresh air over widescreen and my dads new 36" Panasonic Widescreen. It's more rich detailed and oozes of clarity etc. I have my player outputing the DVD so I only get a small black bar top and bottom for eg. on 2:35.1 Movie and none on a 1:85.1. I DON'T APPEAR TO LOSE OUT ON ANY IMAGE EITHER. I may get the opportunity to review some DVDs in the future. Is a 4:3 TV okay? Am I getting the full picture? I get the impression these days that 16:9 TVs are the norm and people would frown upon an ordinary one. (Until they see mine and complain that their widscreen's picture is crap compared). I know in the US/Can they seem to prefer a large screen 4:3 TV and buy the DVDs on Widescreen (just like me!) Widescreens in the stores there are outnumbered too. Any interesting comments or light on the subject would be appreciated!
