I think it’s pretty good, but not up to the level of something like Stargate.

Thanks! Actually since posting and having taken the time to read back through the full thread I noticed that you had already answered my question several years back so apologies for my laziness here :oops:

Does PAL+ genuinely equal = anamorphic widescreen ( squeeze LD ) ?

I have two titles in my collection ( Showgirls in German and the documentary Microcosmos ).
Microcosmos looks fantastic for a PAL LD however both titles are not anamorphic.
Where does this idea come from that all PAL+ content = anamorphic widescreen ?
However the lddb database says that they are squeeze titles but they are not. Can
anybody confirm ?

This is just a guess but...
I'm not entirely sure how PAL+ worked, but I think your display needs to support it, or you need an external PAL+ Decoder to make it work.
A really long time ago a friend had a 16:9 GRUNDIG crt that could do this, but we never had a PAL+ LD so dunno how that was supposed to look.
