I also have the VW50 and want to use it in a 2,35:1 CIH setup. I also want a BR player that will output 1080p24, so 1080p24 input is a "must have".

I did not know that. Thank you for the information. I was actuelly considering the VP50, but that rules it out...

I have been happy running 1080p48 out of the Lumagen HDQ into my Pearl / UH380 combo. Something to think about are HDMI audio issues. If you care about HDMI audio, you pretty much have to run at 1080i at this point because most receivers have issues with 1080p. I have the HD-XA2 and I send 1080i into the Lumagen.
I need the following from a VP;
1. HDMI 1080p24/25 input (film-based material) -> vertical stretch for anamorphic lens -> HDMI 1080p24/25 output
2. HDMI 1080i60/50 input (film-based material) -> vertial stretch for anamorphic lens -> HDMI 1080p24/25 output
3. HDMI 720p60/50 input (film-based material) -> vertical stretch for anamorphic lens -> HDMI 1080p24/25 output
The VW-50 does not accept 1080p48 input, so I need 1080p24 output on HDMI from the VP...
