I use MythTV's zoom feature all the time with my 16:9 TV connected via
VGA or DVI, but I'm not sure if it would work with the PVR-350's decoder
output. I have configured another system using a PVR-350 and a 4:3 TV
connected to it, but MythTV doesn't seem to control the size or shape of
the video output directly. I believe it's possible using ivtv utilities.
