when I hook up my Directv to Panny 42PW4 via component, I can cycle through all aspects (normal, full, zoom, just) but when I change the input to S video, it will only stay in zoom mode. Can anyone explain?
yes, there's a small DC voltage that's causing the Panny to lock your aspect ratio. You can buy a fix (John Sim), build a fix (he submitted his design on this site), fix your screen (involves openning it and cutting out a component - not for the light hearted).
