I have an HLM507W with the FLI2300, DNIe, firmware rev of 204 and a manufacture date of Dec 10, 2003. This set does not default to wide when you switch between inputs, it remembers the setting you had it on the last time you used any particular input, except after using PIP. When you come out of PIP the set defaults to wide. I wonder if the HLN's will also do this, I only mention this because of all the claims that default to wide has been fixed. For those that do not have this set, there is an aspect button on the remote to toggle through the various settings (4:3,wide,panorama,zoom1,zoom2). So when the TV defaults to wide it's not that big of a deal, but there have been claims that this has been fixed and at least on mine this fix is not 100%.
