Grey Bars on Panasonic Viera TCp50 720p


My TV is a 50inch Panasonic Viera TCp50 720p Plasma



Why would any company put grey bars on the sides of a widescreen tv when viewing in 4x3? It's distracting, and seems more prone to burn in. Can anyone explain the logic or benefit?

Also, you can go into the menu and change the sidebars from light (gray) to dark (black). Or at least a reasonable attempt at black. Until black turns to gray.

You get used to it! My old Rear projection 1080i HDTV did the same thing also. Some HDTV's allow you can pick either the grey or black.
