It always depends on the source video and your usage.
Now that you know the maximum this sony can play, you can still restrict yourself to the device screen size:
4:3 movie --> 640x480 px
16:9 movie --> 720x405 px
I've just downloaded a movie trailer at 640x268px, so roughly 2.4:1 ratio. For this geometry, with a bigger source movie your conversion would be:
2.40:1 movie --> 720x300 px
And so on... Beware that there are often differences between pixel ratio and output ratio. A 16:9 widescreen PAL DVD movie at 720x576 px is 1.25:1, but must be shown at 1024x576 px (16:9). So you must take this output ratio in account when converting. Sometimes you have movie whose ratio is 2.40:1 on a 16:9 presentation, where the black bars are already added. You just have to play it at the 16:9 ratio.
Have fun!
