Also i have a panny PX60 HD ready if I select DVI Auto would it just play at the best ratio. When I select a specific option eg 720p etc it seems to shift the screen to the right by an inch??
When it comes to switching resolutions (via DVI) or component signals, I think the problem may also lie on the television/projector and in the way they handle the signals. Remember, digital tv or projectors have a panel, and they try to adapt the incoming signal to this panel, either it is 800x600, 848x480, 1362x768 etc. So check if a DVD player with the same type of connection also exhibits this problem when switching resolutions.
As to your 4:3 to 16:9, this shouldn't be necessary, if the code was well written. What I mean is that, despite the fact that i set the IAMM on 16:9, meaning I should get the 4:3 AVIs with black bars on the sides
, I get them (horizontally) streched most of the times. I go to the SETUP menu, and set it again to 16:9 and it works until I play a file of different aspect ratio.
But for DVDs, if you play e.g. the interviews (which are not always 16:9) the player should have detected this and add black bars to the side...
Am I asking too much for a well-written and somewhat intelligent code?
