Jennynoel is right--it's is INCREDIBLY irritating to have the bars up there. Like her, we go with the mode that stretches the edges, and it really isn't noticeable.

I have to question the wisdom of not buying HDTV/widescreen if you are spending a large amount of money on a new TV now. The way we looked at it, the standard broadcast format will be widescreen and HDTV within a couple of years. My TV died, so I didn't have a choice whether or not to replace it...but I didn't want to be buying a new one in another year or so. Buying a 4:3, standard-def box was akin to buying obsolescence.

Now, there are good arguments to NOT getting an HDTV, that's just the argument I came up with to justify my purchase ;)

Next step: shell out for Comcast HDTV digital cable.
