[mythtv-users] Problem: 4:3 content always fills my 15:9 screen. Consequently, the aspect ratio is incorrect.

I will experiment with -dpi parameters to Xorg tonight (when I'm at home).

Here are the experiments I will try:

Experiment #1: Set the -dpi parameter to 57 x 57 (the true dpi of the screen)

Experiment #2: Set the -dpi parameter to 100 x 100 (often suggested to
improve GUI element sizing)

Experiment #3: Set the -dpi parameter to 95 x 57 (15:9 for 57dpi)

Experiment #4: Set the -dpi parameter to 57 x 95 (9:15 for 57dpi)

Experiment #5: Set the -dpi parameter to 167 x 100 (15:9 for 100dpi)

Experiment #6: Set the -dpi parameter to 100 x 167 (9:15 for 100dpi)

Can you think of any other experiments I should try?
