Sony FX66 - 'smart' mode question

from reading threads on here, there seems to be 2 ways in which most tv's handle their auto-resizing for different aspect transmissions

1. Exactly whatever the broadcast was intended to be shown in - ie 16:9/14:9/4:3 - the latter two, with black bars either side, of increasing size.

2. A mode which fills the screen no matter which of the above modes the program was filmed in - giving distortion of varying degrees.

Can anyone tell me which camp the FX66 falls into (with a skydigital connection)?

cheers

(damm this forum is popular ;-)

no fx66 owners out there with skydigital?

anyways, i personally think at this end of the market they should have put both mode options in, described.

All Sony W/S TVs have the following modes

WIDE for Digital BBC and Anamorphic DVD
ZOOM for L/B DVD
14x9 for semi letterboxed Analogue BBC
4x3 for 4x3 stuff
SMART for 14x9 or 4x3 zoomed to 14x9 then edges stretched to fill screen
