    I have a SDI-modded european Denon 1600, and I am under the impression that it is not possible to either display 16:9 content full-screen and 4:3 in pillarbox mode or both 16:9 and 4:3 full screen (as I would expect things to work when using the SCART interface or WSS for aspect ratio switching). The only 16:9 mode that I see scales up 4:3 content and cuts off top and bottom of the image. I'd very much prefer to choose the aspect ratio with my scaler or projector. Am I missing anything? Are there discrete remote control codes to directly switch the configuation of the player between 4:3 and 16:9 display? Do newer versions of the firmware (mine is 044) provide a solution for this?
