Letter-boxed SD programming on an HD monitor? by Bert Hyman
What's it look like when you're watching a letter-boxed movie from a conventional SD channel on an HD 16:9 monitor?

DLP and non HD sources by [email protected]
I'm interested in either 46 or 50 inch DLP. I currently use DirecTV and standard DVD. I am planning to move to DirecTV HD. Since much of my viewing will still be non HD, I'm trying to understand what to expect from a DLP. I've tried to get a couple of big chain stores to show me a dedicated...

Displaying HD 4x3 pictures from Motorola DCT5100 to Sony XBR by PeterH
I've connected a Motorola DCT5100 from Comcast to a Sony 40xbr800 4:3 TV via the component connectors. The Sony has a "16:9 enhanced" mode which automatically detects a 16:9 aspect signal, and inserts bars above and below the picture, maintaining the resolution. Whenever I tune to an HD channel on...
