No official thread yet, or maybe I am blind, so I think I am starting things off here. I have a few questions Ron. I have been looking at this unit for a week or so at a store near me and am deathly curious about it. It looks amazing, but I have a couple questions 1.Can it record anamorphic, or convert things to anamorphic. Meaning can I make a letterbox VHS or LD I am recording for an archive copy an anamorphic version while recording? I dont think I can, but it would be cool nontheless. 2.Does it have a scaling feature? Since it uses the Furjudja(or however it is spelled) chip, I assume it does not, but scaling is a function that made me want my current JVC player. It is an invaluable tool since my Panny 47 locks into full mode while in progressive scan. Thsnks for the review.
