My 27" set is maybe 5 years old. Perhaps the new ones auto-detect, I think I read that somewhere in a brochure. But none of the 4:3 WEGA's smaller than 27" have this feature at all. I know because I looked at all of them last winter when I bought a new TV.

Then on the other hand, are you sure that it isn't your DVD player that's automatically letterboxing?

Hmmm. I'll try hooking the new Sony DVP-NC665P DVD player into my very old 27" TV sometime.

I don't see any feature in the specs that would do auto-letterboxing or auto-aspect :

That Sony 40" is one massive tube! Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe Sony and Mitsubishi are the only ones who have attempted a CRT tube of that size. The Mits was a big bubble analog set from around 94' or 95' with massive handles on the side.

I just sold my Sony Wega today (34" HD CRT) and my back is not sorry to see that heavy monster go. I'm replacing it with a 50" LCD Hitachi set that weighs about 100lb. Of course the native 720p support has me wishing for another consumer HD besides the crippled JVC twins.

The BBC prety much demand that all new programming be in 16x9 anamorphic widescreen, delivered on anamorphic DigiBeta. The whole of europe is rapidly going widescreen.
