    I have a Philips 28PT4456 TV and Toshiba SD210E DVD player and have noticed that all my DVDs are not displayed in the aspect ratios as given on the DVD boxes. I have set the DVD player up as 16:9 rather than 4:3 as this at least gives me the two black bars. The TV options have nothing for pan & scan and widescreen. They are shown in widescreen, not to the dimensions the aspect ratios specified.

    Of the 4 different aspect ratios I have movies in (2.35:1, 2.21:1, 1.85:1 and 16:9) none are shown as specified, they always have a bit cut off the sides.

    Does anybody else have this problem and can suggest a solution? Is this a TV or DVD problem? My guess would be a TV problem so any possible alternatives (at a reasonable price and with RGB Scart input)?
