I have been working on this feature for the past couple of days. Pretty
much works, but I need to do some more testing.
I can now specify a display resolution based on the input video
I have taken Doug Larrick work which allows separate GUI and video
resolutions, and expanded it.
The reason this is useful to me, is I have a 4:3 HDTV. My TV automatically
goes into a vertical squeeze mode (resulting in a 16:9 aspect) when
presented with vertical resolutions above 480P. I generally use Myth to
watch HDTV, but would like it to be "full screen" when I watch SDTV
I should have a patch ready to submit by this weekend.
