    I am looking to get my first Wide Sceen Projection TV about somewhere around 50" to 55".

    1) How many shows and sproting events are really made in the 16:9 format? Is there a webiste that keeps track of this?

    2) I assume shows in the 3:2 aspect ratio auto-adjust and have black bars on the sides?

    3) How many TV shows and sports are in the HD-TV?? Is there a webiste I can learn more about this?

    Thanks

    This is a really good FAQ on everything you wanted to know about HT

    http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htforum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=120328

    Check out the forum too, lots of friendly knowledgeable people there.

    If you want to get HD (widescreen 16:9) broadcasting all the time, check out http://voom.com/index.jsp

    My widescreen does not automatically adjust between aspect ratios. I've never heard of one that does (not to say that it doesn't exist). I leave mine on an intermediary aspect ratio that looks good when switching between 3:2 and 16:9.

    Hope that helps.
