Most DVDs should be 1.85, as are movies, but unfortunately, they are cropped often to 1.77 by the same idiots who crop HD 2.35 movies to 1.77. "They" think that black bars are evil, and "they" crop every time they can. So, go for 1.77, or you will be constantly annoyed.

I don't know what they "should" be, but the vast majority of DVD's I rent are 2.35:1. A year or two ago many had a full screen (4:3) option, but few do now.
