Myth is treating my 16:9 HDTV as if it had a 4:3 aspect ratio. All the
screen fonts and menus look OK but when I watch a 16:9 HD show I get
horizontal bars instead of full-screen. I assume the TV (or possibly the
receiver I use to switch HDMI inputs) is sending incorrect EDID info. I
tried adding the following lines to my xorg.conf file but it didn't help.
Option "UseEdidDpi" "FALSE"
Option "DPI" "100 x 100"
OPtion DisplaySize 487 274
My next step in troubleshooting is to use powerstrip to create a custom
modeline for the TV. And disable EDID completely. As a side question can
I use may windows laptop with powerstrip or do modelines need to be
created for specific video card and TV combinations?
