I have lurked here for about 2 months. I did buy the Mits widescreen 55WS807 and like it for DVD, DirecTV does not look too good. Question, when watching DVD movies in 2.35 format, there are still black bars above and below the picture. I set my Sony (cheap)DVD to 16 X 9 mode. Am I doing something wrong or is this just the way it is? I don't really like expanding or zooming the picture. Thanks.
