Didn’t mean to imply that. I know that 4:3 does not properly scale to 16:9 widescreen. But it seems like maybe that 480p DV standard somehow allows a 4:3 image to be scaled to 16:9 properly, and somehow it can utilize 3:2 aspect ratio when working with 4:3 or 16:9. I think that the DV standard would record in 3:2. I’m not sure how everything works together, but when you guys started talking about using that DV standard and getting better results with the Dreamcast 480p aspect ratio on the display, that sounded like it could be the key, although I really don’t know why. I know pixel shape has something to do with it. I was also concerned about what is actually coming out of the Dreamcast so if this is a solution, it is implemented to get the best results.
