    Thank God I only have to see most of these people once a year. They aren't the hippest or brightest folk when it comes to home theater.
    Aunt Lorraine: Thinks 16x9 enhanced is a new line of bras.
    Aunt Claire: Thinks pan-and-scan is an option on a dishwasher.
    Cousin Tony: Still trying to figure out how they get 5.1 movies onto one DVD. (On a sidenote, 5.1 is actually his IQ)
    Uncle Lonnie: He bought a new reciever and I exclaimed "You have DTS!" He rushed to the doctor.
    Cousin Betty: Her butt has an aspect ratio of 2.35: 1. Usually expands to a whopping 2.70:1 during the holidays. Put down the sausage balls, honey!
    Uncle Ray + Aunt Nadine: They still live in their original trailer.
    Grandma: Has TV spots all over her 1971 Zenith console.
    Cousin Leo: Wears lots of leather and gets excited just over the words "Digitally Mastered." You figure it out.
    Aunt Shirley: Never shuts up. The woman is a walking audio commentary.
    Yep, I am officially bored. [​IMG]

    I saw Cousin Betty this evening at a family gathering. Within an hour of scarfing up the bean dip, she created her own surround sound. It started out at 2.0 but ended up as DTS. Yikes!

    Considering the description of "Cousin Betty", 2.35 Wide, and considering Will only mentioned 2.0, I would guess we get a FULL birate on this one.

    But if she is loaded with extras on top of the 2.35(ANALmorphic?), then we may be looking at half bitrate.
