I have the Epson 8100 and a 2.40 screen. You'll need a video processor to do vertical stretch, I have Lumagen ProHDP for that but its expensive. I think there is a Blu-Ray player now that has the stretch built in, maybe the new Oppo does it. There may be some cheaper video processors out there also that will do it. Also you'll need anamorphic lens, I have the Panamorph UH-380, that's not cheap either, look for one used. I throw a 109" wide picture from about 13 feet if that helps and it looks awesome. FWIW for the rare 16:9 movie I watch I just leave the lens in place and stretch it out to 2.40, it's not that bad looking, no big deal except here on this forum you get bbqued for admitting that you do that.
