Hi! I'm newbie to this forum. Glad to join!


Does anybody know what new 16:9 mode (letterbox) on Toshiba 4:3 TV is? Does it work on 480P signal?


Any information is appreciated!

This mode allows the TV to 'pretend' that it's a 16:9 widescreen set. You can engage this with anything plugged into the component video inputs. With 16:9 mode set to 'Compression' and your DVD player set to 16:9, you'll enjoy the full benefit of anamorphic DVDs.

JohnnyG,


Thank your for your reply. Wow!! 71 series support vertical compression for not only 1080i but 408i/p, right? It's sweet. On your site, another mode for 16:9 is explained "letterbox mode raster shift". Would you explain this a little more?


But on the other hand, I heard that the new Toshiba upconverts 480p to 540p forcely that causes some unneccesary artificial issue though previous model supports 480p natively.


As your opinion, which series (xxH70 or xxH71) do you think better?
