This is interesting too. If 2.35 movies are only 800 pixels tall, how could they claim that the movie is 1080p? Sounds like they should say 800p.

I'm guessing the real answer is that my projector is "compressing" the 2.35:1 picture. Since 2.35:1 is 32% wider than 16:9, instead of just chopping off the extra 16% on the left and right sides and...

That statement confuses me. I'm not asking my projector to project a wider image - and it's not. If it was actually projecting a wider image, then I'd have over-spill on both sides of my screen -...

2.35 vs 16:9

I am super confused with this 2.35:1 vs 16:9 stuff.

2.35:1 vs 16:9 means for the same height, a 2.35:1 movie will be wider than the 16:9 - but they will be the same height.

So if that's the...

I actually don't know! When I run test tones to set the levels, I don't have a way to have both subs playing at once, unless I daisy chain them together, which I haven't done.
