I have a Sony 36XBR800 tv. I find the picture annoyingly small when watching DVDs in 2.35 aspect ratio. I have read about new Panasonic DVD players that offer incremental zoom features to enlarge the picture to get rid of black bars. I currently have a Panasonic CP-67 that does not offer this feature. Below is an excerpt of a review from Home Theater Spot on the Panasonic DVD-S35. This player’s best feature however, is the incremental zooming ability. With a non-anamorphic, letterboxed DVD (or if you just can’t stand black bars on any DVD), you can zoom in 0.01X increments. The degradation in picture quality is fairly minimal and would probably be even less so on a 4:3 direct view TV. My question is, has anyone used this feature on the Panasonic (or any other DVD player)? How much picture degradation will there be on a 36 inch tv? Will this feature work with any DVD? I would like to zoom the picture to make 2:35 equivalent in size to a 1.85 format, not to get rid of the black bars entirely. I assume this will cut off a bit of the sides but I am willing to make that trade off to have a slightly larger picture. Do any other DVD players offer incremental zoom?
