Is it alright to watch programs that do not fill the screen? - High Definition (HD) FAQs
Answer: 
Yes, it is alright to watch programs that do not fill the screen; however, there is a potential to get what is known as "burn-in" on the sides of the screen.  This could ruin your television set, especially if it is a projection-type television. Consult your user's guide for information regarding viewing 4:3 (standard video) programming in its native format.
