Then I pop in the disc and it is in 4.3 ratio. So I hit wide mode on my t.v to fill the screen and i'm unhappy with it. In my opinion there is no way anyone could be happy with the looks of that upconversion. I hear people saying great things about it so my tv must not do it.
I guess I need a A2 sooner than later.
Well, if your dashboard is displaying in widescreen mode, then it's definitely your TV settings. Are you sure you're setting it to 16:9 mode, and not a Zoom, or Stretch mode?
When you say you are "unhappy" with the results when you set your TV to wide mode, what do you mean? It's stretched out and whacky looking (out of proportion), or it just doesn't look good (i.e. quality)? Perhaps you are just expecting too much from upconversion....I know I couldn't really tell a difference until I took pictures of a DVD playing on my old player and then playing through the XBOX, then after comparing the pictures, the difference was noticeable.
