I just bought a 40 in JVC LCD HDTV. these are some of the specs: LT-40X887 40" Flat Panel LCD TV 40" 1366 x 768 Flat Panel LCD with ATSC/QAM Tuner High Resolution W-XGA (1366 x 768) LCD D.I.S.T. 770p (Digital Image Scaling Technology)with GENESSA Picture Processing Now I also bought an LG upconvert dvd recorder. I hooked it up directly to the LCD via HDMI cable and I am also running an optical connection to my surround sound. Now when i play MI3, Flyboys, Grudge 2, etc. it looks and sounds awesome. Now the problem (if it is one) is that I was under the impression that since my TV is 16:9 capable that when i put a movie in it would take up the whole screen. Well negative it does not! the movie only plays in the middle of the screen. Why??? Yes i did set the dvd to 16:9 but still does nothing??? last night i played the movie the departed and it looked like crap..it looked a little blurry and it was not clear at all. Now is that just the way the movie is? what could it be?? Thanks in advance.
