4:3 vs. 16:9 Screen Calculator

Many, many moons ago someone posted a link to an online utility that calculated television screen size equivalents. For instance, it could tell you that a 65" 4:3 set would display a 1.85:1 movie at roughly the same size as a 42" 16:9 television. I know I'm not explaining it very well, but hopefully those of you who remember seeing the original post can post the link again.

Thanks!

Thanks! That's exactly what I was looking for! I tried the search function, but no matter what I typed in, it always came back with no results found.

Is there another online utility (or a couple) that can calculate EXACT screen sizes with diagonal dimensions? For a DIY screen. Like what are the EXACT dimensions (not including borders) for a 80" diagonal 16:9 screen and a 94" inch 16:9 screen. I can use the pythagoren theorem but find it very reassuring using a caluculator.
