    Grahamricho has a s/h Seleco SVP320 CRT projector.

    Widescreen mode is used to get more resolution and so give better picture quality from anamorphic (enhanced for widescreen) DVDs.

    Your DVD player should be set to 16:9 mode first. Then you should notice that on anamorphic DVDs people look taller and thinner. The widescreen mode corrects this distortion.

    Regarding picture height - you really need a test disc like AVIA or Video Essentials to set the picture height and width accurately. Regular films can't be relied upon to be as accurate as the ratio printed on the box. However, when you have a test disc, the picture heights can be worked out with a little simple maths.

    For 4:3 images: Measure your screen width, divide by 4, then multiply by 3 = picture height

    For 16:9 images: Measure your screen width, divide by 16, then multiply by 9 = picture height.


    It looks like you've bought this projector and had a go at setting it up yourself. There's a great feeling of satisfaction when you first get a picture converged. If you want to see your projector performing at its best then I would definately suggest a professional convergence. The difference it can make can be amazing. Gordon (Convergent AV) and I have lots of experience with Seleco products and I'm sure you might find other professional with these skills also.

    Regards
