Advertisements I just got my first widescreen TV and I've got a few questions about how my TiVo works with it. I've got a series 2 5400 series TiVo (the "nightlight" one). I've changed the setting for 16:9 capable TV. My only recording source is a satellite dish, so it's composite in, therefore everything coming into the tivo is in 4:3 aspect ratio. But when it records and plays it back it's stretched for 16:9. How does TiVo work for widescreen? I would think that it should play back stuff recorded in 4:3 with bars on the sides.
