I have a 32" Philips CRT HD set with a 4:3 ratio. I currently have my 622 hooked though the component inputs to the TV. All of my local HD stations appear smaller on the screen then they should be. I have black bars on all 4 sides of the picture. The only way to fix this is to go into the 622 menu and adjust the HDTV setting to 4:3 #1. This streches the picture up and down then I just have to adjust the aspect ratio on the TV itself and then the picture will encompess the entire screen. I can't live the 622 on the #1 option because all of my SD channels then do not fit correctly. Any advise behond hooking the antenna up directly to the TV with its built in HD tuner?
