If you are using an HTPC, it has the flexibility to perform its own aspect ratio control, either within the player software (WinDVD, PowerDVD, ATI Player, etc.) or using third party free software ( Jim Ferguson's YXY ). The quality of the scaling performed by the HTPC will likely be superior to any aspect ratio control performed by the projector itself.
