OK, well to keep from starting a new thread, I have another different but similar question:
Looking at the LG PB60g as an example using the ProjectorCentral Calculator, at native 16:10 resolution and using my fixed distance (around 9'8") to screen, the screen height would be 48" high and 77" wide, around 91" diagonally. I can only fit a max screen size of around 33" high and 77" wide over my desk.
According to Draper's Custom Screen Size Calculator, 33" high by 77" wide (84" diagonally) is a perfect 2:35 CinemaScope aspect ratio and the same image dimensions that the LG PB60g produces at my needed projector to screen distance (9'8").
So, could I possibly get by with using this LG pj by using VLC player to play all movies in 2:35 aspect ratio?? Am I completely wrong in all of this?? It would be awesome if this would work!!
