Hp 50 inch plasma settings

Hi all, just found this site and i am a newbie to HD.
I cannot figure out how to watch a regular channel with the picture covering the screen without the peoples heads looking squashed? It is set to 1080 on either 16:9 or auto, not sure. Hope I do not sound to dumb, lol. It is a 50 inch HP we just got at bb for 2200 on sale. Thanks for any help in advance.

Well, a regular non HD channel is 4:3 so it will not cover the whole screen. There will be bars on the right and left side. The Picture setting on my Toshiba is called Natural.
