Hey guys,
Just got my Panasonic AG 5710 (AG 1980) back from a refurb and the picture is better than any other VCR I've seen, (even compared to my prized JVC HR S6900U). I'm trying to copy a family members VHS-C tapes circa 1999. Is there a way to capture it and stretch it to 16X9 instead of 4X3? I notice on the controls of the deck, there is a switch for Auto, Wide, and NOR. Would this have something to do with this? I'm just not a fan of watching videos and then seeing black bars on the sides of the image.

Why would you want to distort the image?

No.

This is something that would have to be performed in editing software.
