I have it hooked up to the TWC without a box, and it doesn't stretch 16:9 programming, but I don't use it to watch tv. netflix streaming is not stretched either. and to correct some postings saying that it stretches everything to 16:10 ratio, is also false. it makes it sound like regardless of the original screen ratio, the image will always fills the 16:10 screen which it doesn't. if anyone have any particular requests with a particular movie scene or setting, I'll be glad to test and post pics. it does stretch some material slightly, but not to fill the entire screen, I personally believe that it's a software/firmware rather than hardware, so I decided to keep mine, I got mine on sale almost 250 bucks under retail, so it's worth every penny even if it's not perfect. it's bright, and the colors are absolutely stunning. I almost bought the qumi, but after seeing youtube comparisons of image quality, the LG is far superior, making the qumi look dim and colors dull.
