This has been kinda bugging me for a bit, and moreso after the Wonka brouhaha. There is an intense and consistent pro-OAR attitude regarding movies here. But when it comes to television, I perceive less concern about OAR. I've seen various comments and discussions about the zoom modes on widescreen TVs, allowing a 4:3 image (TV) to fill the entire 16:9 screen, with no apparent concern about OAR issues. I've also not seen the same 'stigma' regarding those who tamper with TV OAR as with movies. So why the lesser concern about TV OAR? A few ideas: - I've misjudged what I've read here, and most do consider TV OAR as important as for movies. - This is H-Theater-F and not H-Television-F, and TV is not of concern. - TV shows are considered a lesser art than movies, and so OAR is less important. - OAR is mandatory, except when it's inconvenient (preventing burn-in on widescreen RPTVs) I'm interested in what others have perceived regarding this, and what the reasons for it are (if it is really the case). dave f.
