Thanks Mike, I'll work on updating post 1 tomorrow. Regarding extra horizontal content... my feeling is it's OK because that's how it worked when some of the episodes went into theaters in europe or other parts of the world. That's also how it works in most releases referenced in post 1 (as having gone wide). From a framing standpoint, extra top and bottom however, makes the productions look badly shot (as well as revealing many not intended to be seen microphones or camera cables etc.).
