Apologies if this has been asked before.
I have an ST50 and I've noticed that on 4:3 content it automatically stretches the content to fill the 16:9. And when I set the display to 4:3 the pillar bars are light grey rather than black (like specifically lit grey). I've had the set for over a year and rarely watch 4:3 content but recently got some old TV shows on DVD and it has become more of an issue, though the problems also exist when watching cable, so it...
I apologize if this has been answered before, but I purchased my VSX-21TXH in 2010 and it seems to have a very early firmware on it. I have several questions:
1. Does the latest firmware allow it to pass 3D from blurays? (I can get vudu 3d from my PS3 which is connected to the AVR, but blu-rays don't work, I understand that's because they are at a higher resolution)
2. Where do I get the latest firmware?
3. HOW do I update the firmware as the AVR doesn't have wi-fi and I...
Can you explain a little further why VUDU on the PS3 or Comcast through the AVR, would work, but not blu-ray discs? It seems like its all 3d content, and given the PS3 recognizes my display as 3D through the AVR it shouldn't be an issue. I guess my question is why would it pass 3d content from one PS3 source but not another, or from another source entirely all of which are connected through the AVR.
