Why would anyone stretch the image and distort it? And why? TO SAVE THE
TV!!! You've got it backwards. The TV is supposed to work for you, not,
you work for the TV.
I think all the TV's running in the wrong mode(s) in department stores
and TV showrooms are very bad for HDTV. People who don't know, think the
"stretched look" is what it is supposed to be doing, and they won't buy
it. Or worse, some are convinced that "they'll get used to it", and
attempt to do so! Always watch the picture in the original aspect ratio.
