    Hi,

    as a resonably new user to this stuff I have a question. I run my PTAE100 PJ with a laptop and Powerstrip for pixel perfect mapping. Nearly all of my DVDs are anomorphic and look great. However the odd DVD is non-anomorphic, i.e. plian old letterbox (e.g. Midnight Run). So when I play it in Wide480 mode from the VGA output of the laptop its squashed and wrong. In Wide480 mode you cannot select to zoom the pic. from the PJ, but you can in PowerDVD.

    Question is, is there any other way of doing this, e.g. thru a different resolution setting in PowerStrip or any particular setting on PowerDVD?

    Thanks for looking and any input

    Donnacha

    I always use the software to resize.
    I use TheatreTek as my player.
    Although, I suppose you change the projector priority setting?
    Haven't tried this so I might be talking rubbish.

    Cheers

    Cheers Chris,

    I think I'll resize using PowerDVD, unless anyone can think of a smarter way.
