Like jeahrens, I don't think it needs revising.You really need to revise that bold and unequivocal statement, Gary. It should say, "If _I_ can watch normal 16:9 content any taller than scope from where _I_ sit, then _I'm_ not sitting close enough.".
Because it certainly doesn't apply to me, nor to many others. Some of you CIH-purists are just as guilty as you're claiming Bud to be. Talkative pots & kettles. Not everyone is willing to join the Church of the OTAR. Nor should they have to.
If you're watching a 16:9 image, be it on a 16:9 screen or a 2.35 screen, if it's too small for you, then you're sitting too far back - you need to either move your seats closer so that its big enough for you, or zoom the image larger/get a larger screen.
