How about a way to turn some of the modes off? Two of the existing modes
distort the aspect ratio modes and now you've added a third, but I don't
know why anybody would want stretch modes.
On DVB-T here the stations all transmit at 16:9 picture, with black bars
added if they only have 4:3 material. I use a 4:3 TV. The only useful
modes are the default mode (whose name I forgot) and 4:3 zoom.
