In 16:9 mode the picuture is ALWAYS in 1080i mode no matter what because hiting # does not change resolutions in 16:9 mode. It simply stretches and zooms.
My particular HDTV does not allow for any display level stretching through the DVI connection so I must use the Pace box to do this.
I have the Pace 550 with a Toshiba 57h83 thru DVI
It took the DVI about a day to take over the component
The Toshiba will not stetch the DVI input
I find the best results with:
Pace Box set to PASS and 16x9
as the Pace wiil strech without hesitation when needed but takes a few seconds when set to 4:3
I find that the aspect ratio will change automatically only if only the channel is accessed directly (not through the remote up/down)
