I have read that viewing normal 4:3 format on a 16:9 set can have adverse circumstances. Can someone explain this?
I hope to upgrade both TV (TW40X81) and DSS (Dish Network - I currently have just an antenna) at the same time for HDTV programming, but will still be viewing plenty of "legacy" TV & videos, in addition to DVD. Are there STB's that can be purchased to reformat these into 16:9/anamorphic format and eliminate problems and enhance the picture?
I have also read that on these sets with satellite reception sports are often plagued by artifacts. Again, is there a separate device that will eliminate this effect (hopefully the same one as above!!)?
The 14:9 aspect ratio has only half the distortion of 4:3 zoomed to 16:9. You do not lose much image! Just an amount of image similiar to overscan, at the top and bottom edges of the screen.
