    Hi there all was going to get the sony vpl untill i found out i could not mount it on the celling.

    so the next projector out there seems to be the panny AE100
    i have read that it has a true 16.9 panel but was woundering

    I don't know how correct this is, but, reading through spec sheets for it, Just mode was mentioned. If it's implemented like on their TV's, it simply leaves the majority of the centre of the pic untouched, ie, 4:3 and stretches out the sides to fill a 16:9 ratio. It works very well on my 32" Pan TV. So if it is the same, then that will do fine.
    That's a 'big' reason for me to look at this 16:9 projector. I use Auto Just all the time, so it's ideal as everything is either 16:9 or pseudo 16:9. Good compromise. The best I've seen.
    As for a true 4:3 mode, I don't know. Didn't look for it to be honest, I've been widescreen for a few years now and never looked back.
