We shot a piece in HD 16x9 and the client wanted it edited 4x3 letterbox. The footage was down converted via our HD deck. Now he has decided that he wants the piece HD 16x9 and shown, via server on a large 51" screen.
Is there a easy way to re-digitize the timeline to his specs?

Yes, conform the timeline to HD (Media->Conform Timeline) and set it to 16:9. Select the "Make re-acquirable media offline", you will get an HD timeline with all media offline (except e.g. titles) that you can redigitize in HD.
