    However i like the new Panny plasma's very much, there is one thing
    that i don't like in comparison with my 'old' Philips crt widescreen: Panasonic's aspect ratio correction. With Photoshop i've tried to show the difference:

    Philips slices more from top and bottom, and stretches it back up so you'll remain more natural heads.

    I wish Panasonic could make this possible with some kind of firmwareupgrade :D

    Bad comparsion choice That J,Lo Vid is 16:9 in a 4:3 frame so there would be no distortion. but from the posistion of the TMF log the Philips appears to cut more.

    I think this is actually the Philips showing hideous overscan, it's not designed that way, it just happens.

    If you've got a Panasonic without a media box, you should be able to increase the overscan to give the same picture as the Philips.
