  1. Well, I've been spending a little time at


    I propose the next phase -- the videophool. Some of those guys know
    what they're talking about but there are some.... $100 DVI cable from
    Monster. I bet those 1.414s an 0s make a better picture. I guess I
    should be ashamed of my $10 eBay DVI cable since it only transfers 1s
    and 0s. Of course, now that it is properly 'seasoned' for a year... It
    connects my Samsung DLP HDTV to the PC HDTV recorder using ATI tuner
    and video board.

    Since you guys actually DO know what you're doing, I have a question.
    Aspect ratio is the horizontal to vertical size ratio. So far, so good.
    When remapping into a different size screen you have 3 options. Discard
    H material, discard V material or geometrically distort the image such
    that a circle is no longer a circle. What would the term be for the
    distorted image?

    There is a fourth option; "pan and scan" where the 4:3 image of
    interest is shifted on the 9:5 image. This is done at the source

    Glenn Gundlach scrobe on the papyrus:


    That distortion is known as 'anamorphic'. It is how Cinemascope
    pictures with an aspect ratio of 2.66:1 were fitted onto standard 35mm
    film. Have a look at:
