I just got a blu-ray and realize that the majority of movies are in 2.40:1.

I have a Pioneer PDP-5070.

Most all of the high def material I've watched thus far has come from HD premium movie channels... not presented in 2.40:1.

So, how careful do I need to be about black bars above and below the movie? Will they ghost image my screen eventually? Or is it pretty much a non-issue at this point.

I know this is an old topic, but I just wanted some insight from anyone out there with a plasma and their experience with this...

THANKS!

it ghosts on my Samsung 58B650 but goes away with normal viewing.

I only see the ghosting marks when the screen is displaying full black (i.e. no signal).

So... in other words... just enjoy the movies as presented and forgo stretching them.

Correct?

yup, if you watch nothing but 2.40:1 then you'll eventually end up with uneven wear, but as long as you vary your content you'll never had any serious issues.

I just use the H/V position and size functions and stretch the image on my Plasma. When it's all said and done, the image may be very slightly stretched or cutoff BUT at least I get to use all of the screen area that I paid for. Plus it's a heck of a lot easier to see movies from a distance when they are not letterboxed.
