    My Mitsubishi RPTV stretches all 480p material. I'm using a Panasonic RP-91 so I can have apect ratio control. I remember Toshiba had some players that would allow non-anamorphic DVD's to be displayed pillar-boxed for some TV's that locked into 480p strech mode.

    All of the current Panasonic models have the pillarbox feature.

    Thanks. Are the new Panasonic models better in 480p than the RP-91?

    Does it have zoom? You would of course lose a little on the verticle, but I would think not to bad to just get it back to at least close to the proper geometry with it.
