Hope this becomes the standard aspect ratio. Better use of Bluray.

Whoa! My videocard doesn't produce resolution that high. Glad to see it's Toshiba and not Sony. Been using this setup for a year and some months. 32" 1080p Regza @1920x1080. Does all I want it to do because I'm staying with DVD until it hurts.
