Am I the only person having aspect ratio problems?
I am connected via HDMI to a panasonic TH50PZ80U. 99% of movies display just fine on it. HOWEVER, the special features etc are consistently displayed improperly- they are "squashed" vertically, so that the image is distorted. Whether the video is letterbox, 4:3 or 16:9, the vertical squishing is consistent.
In addition 2 actual movies have been displayed in this improper fashion- Psycho and Rushmore (not the criterion edition, fwiw).
I've tried every video setting on the pioneer, and the only work-around to see undistorted video is to set it to 4:3 letterbox, and then ZOOM in with the TV's controls. This results in undistorted, but grainer/lower resolution video.
Like I said, movie features play perfect 99% of the time, it's only the special features/making of/etc.
Anyone else have this problem?
