    Damn, it must be player specific - I tried it on PowerDVD and I could get it to show letterboxed. Doesn't work on my DXR2...

    Hmm, definitely a problem disc. PowerDVD can barely play it (I have to bring up the audio menu, start playing the doco, and then skip to the feature title).

    But, on the aspect ration side, it is anamorphic 1.66:1, which is the theatrical ratio. Their is a black bar at the sides (which you could see if you have zero overscan, but it is outside of the safe regions).

    Update: Hmm, this is even getting more confusing - the 3.5 series of Creative players have a bug with anamorphic PAL discs, something to do with the crop settings, so someone on the web had a patch for registry settings of 3.0 players that you could apply - that did the trick. But now there is no black area on the side, so I am not real sure what the aspect ratio is, or what is just the players. But I'm giving up now while I'm at least ahead... I'll post an update when I get to watch it...
