    I noticed there are many hand-held DVD players out there with 5" to 10" screens that play at 16x9, do they support anamorphic 16x9? If so, which ones? I cannot find any specs on these players that say they do, so I think the chances are slim any of them can.
    Thanks!

    The older Audiovox 7" screen D1730 I have is anamorphic.

    Portable DVD players are not anamorphic or non-anamorphic, they are widescreen 16x9 or 4:3. All portable 16x9 DVD players will play anamorphic DVDs correctly.
