Jeff - I coulda brought you a DVD on Sat. Good luck with your dls. Re: your 2nd question - I think the default includes 4:3 ratio info - which I think (but have no idea, for sure) means that it "modifies it to fit the screen" or whatever they say. So, you should probably still pick a 16:9 option - such as the one MickeS suggested. Let me know - 'cause soon enuf I'll have a fancy new TV as well and will want to use the right option. I have no idea whatsoever about the various naming schemes used... or how to determine quality, etc. I just figure I got lucky that, thus far, the two I got were both in English and one had been edited to remove the commercials, the 2nd one is really crappy... and I'm converting the final one now.
