Most TVs made in the last few years can zoom and stretch an HD signal, but apparently some still can't.

Thanks all for the examples of sets that do zoom. Interesting to see that most sets that can zoom are 1080p sets. I don't think there's anything intrinsic about the 1080p that gives it the ability to offer/require zoom capability. Rather, the manufacturers are probably only putting this feature into their higher end sets, at least for now. Damn, I almost bought a Toshiba 37HL67 ...
Oh well, another feature with which to differentiate sets. Looks like I now have another thing I've been educated about looking for in my next set ...
