    Planned to buy SIC-HS30 interface cable for seeing DivX movies with my Sony VPL-HS2, but it seems that there are no ways for zooming the letterbox computer picture in either with HS10 or HS2. Is it really so? Any possible tricks? ('H Size' + computer settings? S-video card for PC?)

    cheers

    Yes, certain options are "disabled" when using a PC input to the HS10.

    Check out Zoomplayer (assuming it has DivX compatability - codecs etc...). If it does, it's problem solved.

    Shouldn't be too much of a problem I imagine - just depends on the DivX software features.

    Or you can use YXY with your existing player and do the same thing, though it's a bit clunky in comparison to Zoom Player.

    Thanks for the promising answers of yours!
    I was just confused, because having happened to read statements like that:

    "Actually, using a SIC-HS30 cable, it seems the HS10 is quite forgiving... I put through tons of resolutions (using the myHD to output VGA) from 480i, 480p, 768p, 720p through 1080i - and they all worked fine with the HS10 in computer mode - of course everything was in 4:3 aspect ratio!!!"
