ive been waiting around for like 9 months becuase of questions about all the scenarios. about 35% of my dvds are 4:3 and ive heard the dvb318 has issues when its not upconverting and also that it doesnt have pillarboxing. with the new hdmi upconverters i have been reading that you cannot upconvert any commercial dvds, which are all of mine. i have a rp 53" panny, and all i want is a dvd player that can play 4:3 material without color bleeding and has pillarboxing at least as an option. And a upconverting dvd player that can play the commercial dvds. Has any company managed to crack this mystery, or is there a crack somewhere so you can upconvert certain dvd players over hdmi with a commercial dvd in. this is a frustrating thing to me. thanks for any and all responses to this newb.
