It did not include an option to stretch or distort, all pictures were correctly proportioned.
I am not happy with the Toshiba's list of picture distortion options. Stretching, cropping, variable stretching etc! Why do they think we want to see normal people in the middle and fat people on the edges? I would rather see normal people all over the screen. Am I missing something or do we all have to put up with this in "Widescreen"?
Although I have a 37WLT58 with the internel freeview tuner in action everything is correct, if its 4:3 then I see 4:3, 16:9 then 16:9. What you don't state is what source you are getting the problem from, SKY box, DVD etc.
