Default Retraction re "squashed 4:3" thread

My apologies to MC & Lyndonl - I've messed-up big time, got completely confused in the "Squashed 4:3 !" thread by ARC 1 which is the only one I've avoided learning about and which the user concerned hadn't been using before.
I'm reminded it's best not to ever think oneself an expert in anything, there's always something more to learn.

I have deleted that thread to rather avoid confusing any others further.

ARC1 should only really be used on 16:9 TV's

We all learn things here, that's why we keep on coming back

Yep & yep.
We've got a strange mix here with mostly 4:3s in our offices, and as some know I'm not a fan of black bars.

Learn to love them Opti. It means (usually) you are watching a picture as it was framed by the director/cameraman and little or nothing is cut off the sides to make it fit your screen. It also means it's not stretched and people are almost as wide as they are tall if watched on an LCD/Plasma.

Thanks Derek. I do know my stuff with AR (normally) & we've found good ways to deal with our requirements even though it strays from the "norm", all of this is detailed in many threads. This was just some new experimentation by a friend that upset the works.
