Same problem with trying to feed a 103-inch 16:9 1920 x 1080 plasma and a 
2.5-inch 4:3 320 x 240 iPod.  Analog TV might be going away, but differing 
aspect ratios, resolutions, color gamuts, and transfer characteristics will be 
with us for a long time to come.

It's not a new problem, though.  When NBC broadcast "How to Marry a 
Millionaire," they had to put on a home TV screen a movie intentionally shot to 
be different from a home TV screen.

Welcome to my world.
