    Do most new flat screen TVs have the ability to detect whether the
    incoming signal is 16:9 or 4:3?
    My problem is I can't get HD so I'm forced to use composite cables. I
    don't want an incoming 4:3 signal stretched - I would rather have the
    letterbox.
    But if I switch to the DVD player will it automatically see the 16:9
    signal and adjust?

  2. I don't think that works as a generic question.
    It depends on the specific TV and DVD player.

    I have a Vizio TV and a Sony BluRay player, and I am still trying to
    figure out how they interact with each other. Sometimes they seem
    to fight with each other.
