    Any owners of this set can you confirm that the only picture sizing/aspect ratio settings for a 4:3 image are normal 4:3 and Panorama. What happened to all the other settings previous models had and does it really matter?

    I have two of the 26" versions. In the set up menu its true that there's the choice of 4:3 or panorama. I still can't work out the relevance of that though, as you can use the aspect ratio button at the bottom right of the remote to set any of the ratios. The set drops to widescreen for anything connected by SCART (like Sky) when necessary and then back to whatever ratio you've set if you change to a non widescreen broadcast.

    So using the remote you button you can still have the ability to access different Wide picture modes such as Normal, Zoom 14:9, Panorama, Cinema etc as they do on other Sharp models?

    From what (admittedly little) experience I have of Sharp LCDs, the 4:3 vs Panorama setting simply determines the preferred method to display 4:3 signals when using widescreen signalling. It's a feature I'd love to have on my Philips 9986, which insists on using superzoom (equivalent to panorama) when autoswitching!

    i have just brough a Sharp LC-17SH1E it has these Widescreen modes (full, panorama, 14:9 and 4:3) are any of these the same as 16:9?

    Will it make a difference when watching DVD's?

    'Full' should be the mode that correctly stretches anamorphic signals into a proper 16:9 ratio.
