Ok got to ask, maybe I missed something.
I bought a widescreen tv to avoid those annoying bars on screen when watching dvd.
I still have them, on most new releases,
smaller but still there.
I have a choice:
A. watch the movie, with bars,(something my owners manual warns will burn my screen,
and after spending 4k on it I'm reluctant to do.
B. watch in "expand or zoom mode" which cuts down the sides and negates the reason I bought a widescreen in the first place.
I understand that 16x9 is 1.78 aspect, and that most new films are 1.85 or higher, even 2.35.
My question is:
Why the !#*! didn't they, when "everyone" agreed that 16x9 was the ultimate solution,
decide on something wider....say 19x9 or?
