Nope, that'll only work on an actual 4:3 signal. This is a 16:9 signal, 
but with only 4:3's worth of actual picture. The black bars on the 
sides are part of the video stream. Since it is a 16:9 signal, not a 
4:3, the 4:3 zoom mode can't zoom it. Or at least, I think that's the 
case (now I'm not sure)...
