One of the main reasons for my recent purchase of a Malata player was to get the ability to watch anamorphic PAL discs, and my first just arrived--the suberb French edition of IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE. Anamorphic playback of PAL discs requires manual adjustment of the X axis, however, and while I was able to get a beautiful picture by eyeballing, I don't *entirely* trust my eyes. Has anyone figured out the exact X-axis numbers for the most common anamorphic aspect ratios (1.66:1, 1.85:1 and 2.35:1)? I'm mulling over the prospect of working out macros to automate the process, but at the very least I'd like to have the numbers on a post-it I can tape to my remote for handy reference. Thanks!
