Ok let me ask a question this way. Those of you that use a DVD player to vertically stretch your image for CIH 2.35:1. What make and model are you using of DVD player? thank you.

The Samsung 860 and presumably 960 can do it.

I, however, use the vertical fit mode on a Panasonic AX-100 projector to achieve the same thing.

McCall,

Your projector does the proper stretch. You need to use the "letterbox mode" for 2:35 movies.

I have two players connected right now -

Both players are set to 16:9...

Player 1 (Toshiba 2106) is over component and this allows me to use either 4 x 3 normal or 4 x 3 zoom to display both ARs in the correct geometry.

Player 2 (Samsung HD950) is over digital. I use the full mode and then H-stretch for 235...

Both are SD though...

Momitsu 880
Not only does it have x-y scaling, but custom resolutions as well, so I can output a stretched, pixel-mapped image to my IF 4805...Looks great!

I have the momitsu as well, but it has been a long time since I tried to pixel-map with it.

Where did you get your custom values from? I am interested in doing the same thing with my PE8720

Cheers,
Steve

Is the Momitsu 880 the only player that will pixel map and do x-y scaling?

Are there any HD-DVD or BD players that can accomplish this task?

There is a rumour about that Samsung may add "Ezview" to their next Blu-ray player.

We can only hope...
