I JUST bought a Samsung LNT4071F 40-Inch 1080p 120Hz LCD, went to watch what was called a widescreen, enhanced for 16:9 movie on it through a dvd player. dvd player is set to 16:9, tv is on 16:9 and I am also getting the black bars on top and bottom.
maybe I did not understand this, but after watching 'widescreen' movins on my old standard tv that way I was assuming/thinking on my widescreen tv I would get a full screen, not the cutoff letterbox format.
I posted the same question on the main board then saw this thread. am I experiencing the same thing? if so, why would the movies state they are enhanced for 16:9 tv's? If I do Zoom 1 it fills the screen, but when I do I lose part of the picture and it looks distorted size wise a bit.
ps as a side note I LOVE my tv except now having confusion on this issue. would recommend samsung in a second. great tv
