When directors shoot film they use whatever aspect ratio they want-There is no standard-and until there is one-and I doubt that will happen-you will always have black bars no matter what screen you buy unless you use a htpc and you distort\\stretch the picture to fill your screen.

I'm using my LP340 with my Dalite Hi-Contrast 16:9 screen. I'm using a sony DVD player to play anamorphic DVD's, and I have the projector set to use "enhanced widescreen" mode. When I resize the 16:9 image to fit vertically, there's always about 1-1.2" of black bars on the sides of the image. Is this normal? Isn't a 16:9 dvd supposed to completely fill the frame? Is this a bug in the 340?

For some reason the Infocus LP340 does not fill the screen on ANY DVD in widesreen. It's not just your machine sorry.

I think that all projector with a 4:3 native panel will have letterbox 16:9 although their specs may say "support 16:9". This is why there are 16:9 panel projectors like the Sony WH10T and the Sanyo PLV-60 that's true 16:9. Just like the 4:3 TV will have letterbox on 16:9 movies so will the 4:3 native panel projector. 16:9 TV will be rid of letterbox but will have to adjust to watch 4:3 programming. At least this is my newbie opinion.
