Just wondering why the 5800 has a setup option for type of tv (4:3 or 16:9)? Do any standard definition channels broadcast anamorphic widescreen images? I assumed that they'd all be letterboxed in a 4:3 frame.

The 5100 has it as well. It's there in case some station ever decides to broadcast anamorphic. Right now, it's useless.
