    Now that is interesting. Especially the ability to have a 4:3 PIP next to a full 16:9

    Never going to stick in mass market.. Panasonic and a few other I believe tried to launch a 16 x 9 tv years before HDTVs showed up, and it feel flat, because the dominant amount of programing never filled the screen.. Same here.. You are talking about maybe half the movies that someone owns... And when you add in their regular tv viewing, way more than 50% will not fit right.. This will be a niche market only.. Because there are always some people that only watch movies, but not the majority of people..

    Wonder how many family rooms will have to be reconstructed to hold that puppy....the aspect ratio is nice, but wait until folks see just how abstact that size is in many conventional home locations to install.

    Still....it's very cool for the 2:35 to 1 format supporters (personally, I dislike that format...at least for the home).

    It appears a section of the console had to be removed to accomodate the TV. I assume room dimension and or finances prevented other solutions.

    Sold a Sony 60 inch LCD HDTV & custom-fit stand to a gentleman last year. Anyway, I dropped by his place a couple nights later after locating the manual and was shocked.
    The stand was sitting out in the yard getting ruined and the TV was inside the house sitting on top of an old 25" console TV which was sitting on top of coffee table.
