I am sorry but I can't find an answer to this... I have a Sony progressive scan DVD player and a Sony (34 XBR 970) HDTV (480i/p, 720i/p, 1080i). In the menu for my DVD player you can select the TV output type. 4:3 letterbox, 4:3 pan-scan or 16:9. My TV is 16:9 so I selected that. Does selecting this do anything? When the movie is playing and I hit the "display" button it shows that the signal is 480p and 16:9. But what does the 16:9 do? I still have to use the "zoom" screen setting to get rid of the bars. If the screen is on "normal" there are bars on the sides. What does outputting to 16:9 mean? In my manual it looks when you are in 480i/p you can't have unstretched widescreen. I am confused because I thought I've seen Gamecube games that output put to 16:9 without stretching and it's 480i/p. I can't figure this out.
