Hopefully someone can answer this newbie question. When viewing a 4:3 format OTA program in HDTV 16:9 format on a 4:3 set, you are stuck with bars on all four sides, right? Can a HTPC/dTV setup alleviate this problem? I realize a 16:9 set solves this problem, but I don't have the cash for the new RCA 38" and most programming is still 4:3 anyways.

Thanks for the help
