Should you see small black bars when watching a 1.85:1 film on a calibrated 16:9 screen??
In most cases, you won't see any black bars due to overscan, which is typically anywhere from 2-5%, but sometimes higher. If you were to manually adjust overscan on your display and reduce it to 0 (which most people would recommend against) THEN you would see the black bars.
if you are talking about a rear pj yes you should see black bars because the wide screen format on those sets have is 1:78.1 hdtv is a little bigger hight wise then the 1:85 screen .cheers
If your overscan is at about 2% or so ... then you should be able to see the black bars on some 1.85:1 films.
On other 1.85 films, they just open up the top and bottom and reformat the film to 1.78 ...
