    I was just wondering which players out there have that feature where the player can send a 4:3 source "pillarboxed" for "full" mode.

    I have a TV which locks into full on progressive sources, and so as I look around for a new DVD player, I just want to know what my options are re: this.

    I've read many bits and pieces around the forum abou this. As far as I know, it's just the Panasonic RP-91 and the Pioneer DVD-45a & DVD-47ai that have it.

    Are you absolutely sure that Pioneer DV-45a does this? I've never read anything about this in any of its review.

    I suppose I'm not sure.. I had just assumed through the various things that I read.

    FWIW, I do seem to recall someone posting that the Pioneer 45a does do scaling/aspect ratio control. It was maybe a month ago, IIRC. Do a search and find out.

    Sorry, my bad. I confused the Pioneer 47a (or 47ai?) w/ the 45a.

    Here's the post I referred to (and remembered incorrectly):

    Serves me right to post w/out doublechecking first. Guess I'll just have to crawl back into my little hole now... :b
