This was done using a rather convoluted setup procedure but once done, it stayed that way for about a half hour while I channel surfed HD and SD channels.

I'd rather have the stretch implemented correctly than have to become a magician to achieve a proper stretch. ;)

I'm not sure what the point of your post is. Is it because you like "normal" and do not have burn-in issues therefore the rest of us have nothing to complain about?

Most of us have burn -in issues. Most of us ALSO prefer to watch "normal" when a 4:3 image is shown but if we do to much of it our projectors and plasmas will be RUINED. But our only option is either to risk ruining our TVs or to watch an over stretched image which is basically unwatchable!!

Not much of a choice.

Dish better put it at the top of their priority list.

I agree. Since most content is still 4:3 ratio you end up wanting to stretch to fit your 16x9 screen.

We need the "partial zoom" mode just like the 6000 has folks "Hello, McFly.......Anybody home???"
