Be Careful.  If you operate the BVM-2811 for an extended period of time at 
4:3 aspect ratio, you'll wind up with a rectangular burn pattern, which will 
of course show up when you switch to 16:9.
	The 2811's have pretty much the same electronics as the 1910/1911 
family of monitors, just a much bigger chunk of glass to go with it.
