I'm looking to buy a used DLP projector. I want to show movies in an outdoor theater type setting. The projector I'm looking at says that the resoluation is 4:3 native and 16:9 compatible. What exactly is 16:9 compatible? If I put in a movie shot in 16:9, will I see the whole screen or will it be cropped in some way?

You'll see the whole thing, but will be using a small amount of the display's pixel. SD 16:9 projectors are very inexpensive and by using more of the panel, the image will be brighter. Which would be a concern with a large outdoor setup.
