    Hi everyone,

    I just recenlty noticed that when i watch dvds or my broadband tv when i choose 4:3 aspect ratio on the plasma i still get the picture on both sides but they are in black and white. Shouldn't i be getting black bars on both sides when i choose 4:3 aspect ratio?

    I'm not sure if this is a setting probem but if anyone here know can please tell me how to fix it.

    Cheers

    You can chose in the settings whether to have plain light grey bars or what you have described.

    The idea behind the grey bars is to prevent differences in brightness between the 4:3 part of the screen and the rest of the panel, which would happen if you watched a LOT of 4:3 material and didn't have the grey bars.

    Personally I think the "Full" mode works very well and dont bother with 4:3 viewing much any more.
