I was just wondering if this would be a long term soultion to dual WS & P&S DVD releases for those uneducated in the advantages of OAR. Here in the UK, 16:9 sets are pretty much the norm for DVD viewers and I would think it would get that way in the USA in a few years so I'm talking about when they start Panning & Scanning 2.35:1 films to 1.78:1 rather than the current situation. I know Pan & Scan on the fly is a bad solution because (I believe, tell me if I'm wrong) it only shows the central portion of the picture, hence worse than P&S (if there could be such a thing). However I've found so many people with 16:9 TVs that hate black bars so much, if a film is 2.35:1, they'd rather buy the Pan & Scan version & stretch to fit, making everyone short & fat. The solution I'm thinking is using a kind of P&S on the fly which would allow them to crop the edges & fill the screen just as some WS TVs will zoom to do the same thing but without losing picture quality. I know this still means only the central section is shown but it must be better than what they currently do. We've all heard of people with 4:3 TVs setting their players to 16:9 to avoid black bars, making everyone tall & skinny, well this is even worse in my opinion.
