Thanks for the reply. I saw those reviews and specs earlier but I'm still confused because it says both 4:3 and also 16x9 enhanced. If I send an HD widescreen signal to this TV will it be in widescreen or will it have black bars?

So it basically stretches the picture to fit the screen?

It doesn't stretch anything for 16:9 enhanced mode. The 1080 lines are compressed from the 4:3 aspect down to a 16:9 aspect. The result is black bars, consisting of unscanned tube, above and below the 16:9 window. The feature is automatically engaged by the set for "enhanced for widescreen/anamorphic" SD DVDs and the DVD set for 16:9 tv type. It is also auto-engaged for HD inputs.
