Hey guys, I am pretty new to this stuff so sorry if this sounds stupid. I have a Sony progressive scan dvd player hooked up to the Philips via s-video cable. I have setup the DVD player to 16:9 and set the TV to widscreen mode. How come there are still black bars on top and bottom when watching 16:9 DVDs? I thought the reason for 16:9 tv is to get rid of the black bars? The only way to get rid of the bars is to set it to 'expand 16:9' mode but that stretches the image vertically.
