    i was under the impression that the RP91 was the only dvd player under $1000 that did scaling of non-16:9 discs...but i'm trying to do research on the new JVC XVS500 and i can't find any info on it. Best Buy is selling it for $179, and some people are telling me that JVC's should do scaling. Does this one?

    Sean,

    I was under the impression that the JVC 65 models (last year) scaled. The new 500 models are the replacement for the 65, supposedly with the new Mediamantics chip (Pantera 2), so I assumed that the 500 models would scale.

    Also, over at the spot, on the JVC forum, the people state that it does scale.

    Hope this helps.
