    I was watching "No Sudden Move" the other night and from what I can find online it is a 2.39:1 AR film, but it wasn't as wide as "Blade Runner 2049" (also 2.39). Incredible Hulk (also 2.39) was also not as wide as "Blade Runner 2049" but wider than "No Sudden Move". Anyone else experience this...

    I have a XBR-43X800D. It's been working great, but all of a sudden the aspect ratio is wrong, set to 4x3. I cannot find the default menu to make it 16x9.

    Given the W1070, like most projectors discussed here, has a 16:9 native aspect ratio. And my screen location allows for 100"-110" overall width. And let's say for size argument's sake I've come down to the following screen options: 1. Elite Screens 120 Inch 4:3. View Size: 72"Hx96"W...
