I'm noticing some distortion on my new widescreen that I can only explain as stretching of the image at the edges, and compression at the centre. Its mainly noticeable with the vertical or horizontal scrolling text on titles, or if there is a panning image across a flat background. The image is normal in the centre but as it approaches any edge of the screen its seems to stretch off the screen! Otherwise the geometry of the picture seems fine and vertical and horizontal lines seems straight even at the edges. My TV is a Panasonic TX32DK1 but I'm interested if this is quite a common characteristic with most widescreen's. I could not imagine a top of the range Sony doing this for instance, but maybe I'm being to critical. Also are there any testcard DVD's you can buy to check image geometry? Thanks, Dave.
