A lot of what you are seeing are upconverts and formatted as widescreen with the black bars on the sides added to fill out the frame.

Basically, the aspect ratio is 'locked' and thats why you are getting 'not available'.

desidoc: make sure your voom box is not in 720p if it is the toshiba will not let you use the theater modes.The toshiba theater modes work fine with 480i 480p and 1080i.I have a toshiba 57hdx82 and had the same problem with my samsung hd931 dvd player that is how i know how to get around the problem.talk to you later.

The Toshiba will not adjust when getting 1080i only up to 480P you have to do it with your Voom Box.

That's waht I thought,but I love the toshiba wide screen 1 format for SD transmisson and it is a pain to adjust using "delicate darling" VOOM remote. :p

I like it also,great for watching TV on DVD like Buffy,Simpsons and others that are in 4x3 format,you can barely tell it is stretched.
