There is no standard. Just by turning on your HDTV, you can surmise this. Many prefer pillarbox, as that preserves the original aspect of the source. This is true for most SD TV shows that are remastered for HD Blu-ray. But many SD TV shows are remastered for HDTV using Edge Crop, which is a further blowup, cutting off top and bottom of the original frame. This is a preference of some, due to the idea that some people who watch HDTV think that every pixel must be filled, or it's not HD. Different camps for different reasons. I prefer preserving the original aspect, unless care had been taken during shooting to frame for eventual HD. Then nothing is potentially missing in an edge-crop conversion.
