Normally, the DVD player does that when you set your player for a 16:9 aspect ratio.
Does your DVD player not support that for some reason?

Ask in the Anthem AVM-50 or D2 threads. Those 2 pre/pros seem to have the most powerful scalers in them.

It surprises me that your DVD player does not properly handle anamorpic widescreen movies...

Maybe I misunderstood. Are you talking about a projection system that is capable of 2.35 : 1? Like what they refer to as a constant height setup?
