Yep. Will either have a -'ve focal length WRT the X axis and no prescription WRT the Y stretching the image in the horizontal, or it will have no prescription in the X and a positive in the Y shrinking the image vertically.... or some combination there of.

nice setup. Also when your using that anamorphic lens did you also need a graphic processor (such as something from silicon optix)

No extra graphic processor needed. The program I use will stretch or my projector will as well. I could never go back without the use of an anamorphic lens.

This is the discontinued CAVX 2 prism design lens from Australia. Bascially as long as you have a player (probably wont unless its a HTPC) or a projector that will do vertical stretch to eliminate the black bars in which the lens will stretch the image horizontally to a 2.35:1 image instead of 1.85:1 ratio.

CAVX does have a new product that has improved the image even more, but the price tag has tripled compared to my lens.

I was going to suggest another site which would be lighter on the wallet but they have upgraded as well along with the price tag. They used to be the Home Theatre Brothers, now they are a under a different name. Here is a link to some of the projectors that will scale for the lens, and one blu ray player that will stretch as well.

If you watch and collect movies like I do, it is a very good investment if you are buying a front projector, especially when you dont see black bars anymore and utilize the full potential of the screen. You wont want to go back.

i checked and unfortunately my projector is not listed :(. ahh well.

I did some checking and there is a way to use a anamorphic lens but i need to get the following.

Panamorph Anamorphic lens (i think it's around 3k+)
HQV Video Processor MSRP - 3k

so... i think i will pass for the time being. :)

Just like any hobby, it can get expensive. That's why using a HTPC you can do the scaling itself with the right software. It's suprising so many high end Front Projectors didn't have the built in scaling feature a few years back.
And as for the lens, CAVX has their new lens almost half that price. Or you could always check AVSforums for a used lens for sale.
