Thanks, I read about that in Amazon review, I think. Will the adjustment stay put or will it revert when turned off?

It will stay put on whichever input you adjust. The trick is to remember to set it back if you plan on watching something in a different aspect ratio. Incidentally you can achieve the same result setting the wide to auto stretch, however sometimes it may auto aspect during play in this mode after you've made your settings & overextend your desired stretch. (If so, a quick double click of the v button will revert it back).

Changing aspect ratios in Transformers 4

Ugh. This TV fails completely with the 3D version of the latest Transformers movie. The picture changes constantly, often shot by shot, between 2.39:1 'Scope and 1:90:1 IMAX. The IMAX portion is presented windowboxed in the 16:9 center of the screen, but sometimes is expanded and stretched horizontally to fill the full screen after a few seconds. The 2:39:1 does the usual, windowboxed at first, then expands horizontally and finally vertically to fill the screen after a few seconds.

So, the picture is constantly warbling around on the screen, is often stretched out of proportion for extended periods, and overall unbearable. The only way to tolerate it is to disable the auto aspect mode and watch the whole movie windowboxed.

This TV needs a fixed 2:39:1 cutout aspect ratio mode! And a fixed full-frame stretch mode, so that it can be used reliably with an external scaler! Vizio, please!

That is becoming more common with movies lately. Movies like the new batman series do the same thing but not nearly as often. The newest hunger games movie release switches from 21x9 to 16x9 once the actual games start though I bet it could handle it in that case.
