    Can anyone confirm if the NS930 sends any form of aspect ratio flag when connected purely by the 3 component video cables.

    Thanks.

    It does when using interlace via component (line 23 wss), but not in progressive mode.

    Thanks.
    Have you actually seen this in action? My Loewe is currently not switching aspect ratios. I am currently talking to there technical guys as to whether the set should be detecting the line 23 WSS.

    Yea, I have my player connected to my TV soley by component cables. If the player is set to interlace mode, the TV happily switches between 16:9 wide and 4:3 (or smart stretch) as nessesary. When it's set to progressive unfortunately I loose this ability, but it's not a great loss as most dvd's are 16:9 wide I just leave it set to 16:9 wide most of the time.

    For it to work, the player must output line 23 WSS and the TV must be able to detect and act on it.
