I will probably be stoned to death for this, but here goes...

Is there any way to adjust the picture on your current TV so it has the right ratio to show all or most of the picture? I know we went to the "menu" and were able to adjust this a little a long time ago.

We, too, have an old 27-inch TV our son bought us about that time. (Normal set, loose, residing in an entertainment cabinet.) Picture and sound still are fine and we enjoy it a lot every day with our DirecTV setup. Yes, we sometimes realize that left and right edges lose a bit, in some cases, but not that badly.

NOTE: Here is where I may be insulted and stoned!

We know several people who HAVE the new wide-screen sets, and it seems to us that MOST of them somehow "fatten" people onscreen! People look wider than usual! Maybe their sets simply need adjustment, but we see a LOT of sets in stores like that, too!

IOW, we're keeping the set we have, and we hope it lasts for several more years.

Good luck, whatever you decide!
