    When you are watching non-HD channels and they put up 16:9 content with black bars on both the top and bottom you can press Zoom and the black bars will disappear and the image will be zoomed to the full size of your 16:9 HDTV. Certain channels on my Comcast cable like Sundance do not come over in HD so I use Zoom all the time to maximize the screen, however it seems to clip the image sometimes. The zoom button will not work on an HD channel even if they are showing older Non-HD content with black bars.

    Can't think of any non HD channels I even have anymore.

    I can do that with my Sony TV controls. It automatically zooms to full screen whenever a non HD channel is on. It gives me a choice to zoom horizontal or vertical and they both clip the image a bit, it has to. Zoom horizontal makes people look a bit shorter and fatter and vertical makes them look a bit taller and thinner.

    To me, the shorter fatter looks the least distorted so mine is set to that, but like I said I can't remember the last time the TV showed a zoomed view.
