Fat people

As a DVD player, the PS3 is insistent on stretching all 4x3 DVD content to fit 16x9. Who ever thought this was a good idea!? I don't want fat people! Show me the content as intended!! I've been through the menus 5 times, I don't think I'm missing anything. Terribly, terribly disappointing.

UPDATE: Setting the "DVD Upscaling" to any value does nothing (it's not upscaling at all, it's still 480p). I called Sony, per their support docs, and they are not taking support calls for the PS3. Period. None. Don't they like having my money?? Because they may not have it for long.
