Have standard 480i TV. Normal 4:3 on Pansat 2500a NTSC gives full
screen when viewing a DVB FTA channel. When I change the receiver
to 16:9, it gives me black bars on the sides, not on top/bottom
like I expected.

Sounds like that setting is to indicate what your TV is.

If you've got a 16:9 TV, it will format 4:3 content by putting black
bars on the side.

If this is normal with a standard tv, why do I get an apparent 16:9 format
(sometimes on commercials) on some ota screens (which gives black bars at
the top and bottom)?

some of the sd channels are "experimenting" with widescreen (1.78:1 aka
16:9),in order to get people used to the coming changes.
