My eyes and ears?

I've settled on just using the display modes on my TV to squeeze 4x3 DVD content. It's unfortunate since there's no way to automate that. I guess I'm just expected to tell the non-AV-savvy members of my household to press the buttons when the people look horizontally challenged.

The other thing I can't really explain is that I seem to be hearing a lot more from my surround channels now. I can't understand why, I know everything was set up correctly before and the only thing different (besides the source device) is an optical cable vs. coax. The pre/pro is doing all the decoding and signal processing so there's really nothing the PS3 can be doing to affect the signal. I don't get it.

Yes, I'm late to the game, but I finally saw "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" last night. Hysteric! Now one of my new favorites. The bait wearing the Fight Club tshirt was the best. If you haven't seen it, go rent it now. Oh, yeah, and Brad and Angelina are hotties.

What am I watching these days? Real World, Deadliest Catch, How I Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory, PTI, Idol, Americas Port, Hells Kitchen, 30Rock (season's over, booo!), Scrubs (end it already!), Law&Order, Last Restaurant Standing, Survivor, Ace of Cakes, and, last but not least, PLAYOFF HOCKEY!!!! Jo's mad that her Sharks lost, but I'm so used to the Caps losing that there's no point getting upset about it.
