Are there any BD players that can force a 2.35:1 ratio?
I have a 2.35:1 projector screen from my last apartment, and at my new place, my projector cannot throw a large enough image, so I'm considering either a new PJ or switching to 16:9. Another factor here is sending a 21:9 signal all day to the projector. I disliked using my computer as my source, due it its choppy playback and general nuisance to switch between BDs and applications like Netflix. Right now I'm using a PS3 and the playback is nice and smooth, and the menu is intuitive. I was wondering if a higher end product like a standalone player could force a 2.35:1 image so I could use my 2.35:1 screen with a new PJ, and then when switching back and forth between media, the image would stay constant, and yet i'd have ZERO of the problems HTPCs come with. Thoughts?
-edit The only other way I can think of doing this is a BD Player or game console captured by a PC, which then I could choose w/e ratio I want and even colorimeter calibration, but none of the downfalls of using a HTPC like relying on its hardware and software.
