Thanks. I THINK I have things working now. PJ is all set up, and looks GREAT. So I should leave those PowerDVD boxes unchecked, right? -Jeff

Well, I did the 56K ohm mod. I can now squeeze to 16:9, but not to 2.35:1 widescreen. Has anyone else had this problem? I was at about 90% horizontal, so I don't think it's screen distance. What...
