I have noticed that my Toshiba 210 switches happily between the various picture modes on the dvd using component input to my tv, but only with region 2 discs. With region 1 discs no such switching occurs, is this correct. Presumably I just set the tv to wide? Does this account for different numbers of horizontal lines between R1 and R2 discs, or do you end up with slightly squashed picture? The set automatically selects pal or ntsc? as required. Could someone explain how the tv copes with the differences in resolution between sources, ie about 230 lines for video 525 for R1 dvds, and 625? for pal?? As the picture can only display where the pixels are on the screen, I can only assume the electrons must miss as often as they hit when scanned across the tv? ie 600 lines of pixels on tv but 525 or 230 lines projected? Confused!!
