Maybe this is a very simple question to answer. I thought when "widescreen tv's" became the new deal, there would be no more black areas on the screen which made the viewing size even smaller. Now that I have finally picked up a nice 16 x 9 HDTV and HD DVD player, I still have those blacked out areas at top and bottom. Why? Can it be changed? I was under the impression that every thing would be in sync with the new technologies, no more wasted space on your tv.
