I bought the Panasonic PT-52LCX65 and even with HD the picture doesn't look that great. I don't know if it's my cable box or what.
Also, when watching HD channels I have grey letterbox bars AND black sidebar bars meaning the picture is the same aspect as my screen but smaller on both directions. I looked through settings in the cablebox and in the tv but can't find how to fix this!???
What's the point of watching HD on a 52" screen when there are letterbox and sidebars that make the picture 42" and are distracting. I just want to watch the game full screen in HD...

How are you hooking up the set? If you are using a cable box it should be a HD cable box hooked up through the component or HDMI input and the cable box needs to be set at 720p. Also the box should be set for a 16:9 picture format.

I believe most tvs won't stretch an HD signal. Not sure why you would want to do that anyway.

Does anyone have any updated thoughts on the Panasonic DLP's? They have pretty good deal going on at one of the warehouse clubs on the captioned set (limited quantities) and I wanted to see if anyone had any more recent reviews or thoughts on this.
