    _Rodent - Click here. This explains why you still get black bars sometimes even on a widescreen HDTV.

    I have the 40" Samsung and the the aspect size "zoom1" can be used to get rid of bars but it stretches the picture vertically. Things look funny.

    Yeah, my 27" Samsung has that as well. Zoom1, Zoom2, 4:3 and 16:9. I keep mine set at 16:9.
