Question about Projection Televisions
What type of TV signal do you use? Satelite, Cable, Over-The-Air? Is you signal source HD?
If your signal is SD then it will not be widescreen, the bars on each side are present as it is fitting the image on your screen to the proper ratio (4:3). If you input signal is widescreen (16:9) then it would fill the screen. It's similar to when a widesreen movie is display in letterbox (black bars on top and bottom) on a standard TV (4:3).
You should be able to stretch a 4:3 input signal to fill your screen. I personally don't like this as it makes all the actors look short and wide. Circles on the screen become ovals.
You can also only take advantage of widescreen input signals when using the component (YPbPr), VGA, DVI, or HDMI inputs.
