I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Do you mean OAR?

HBO, Cinemax, Starz (and Encore) usually reformat every widescreen film to 16:9, though there are exceptions. Cinemax does show older (pre-mid '50s) movies in their original 4:3.
In the HD Extra Pack, HDnet always does OAR, MGM HD almost always does OAR. I don't have enough experience with SONY HD to know for sure about it.
