I recently purchased a Mitsubishi big screen, HDTV. Some things I’ve been wondering about:
Do all DVD players output in HD? Do I need special DVDs, or will “regular” DVDs display 1080i?
My TV has a generic “format” button that changes the aspect ratio and zoom. For 480i resolutions, there are quite a number of formats, Standard, Expand, Zoom, Stretch, Stretch Plus, and Narrow. For 1080i, there are only two formats, Standard and Stretched. Most of the time, these formats do not fit the screen exactly right, or they distort the image. Can I buy a relatively inexpensive device that stretches the signal exactly how I want? (say I wanted something in between Standard and Expand)
How come Fox has a HD channel, but never broadcasts anything on it?
