Wow...this one had me going. I've upgraded to xorg-server-184.108.40.206 on
my Gentoo frontend and I saw that my aspect ratio playing recordings
in MythTV was wrong. I found this thread:
...which implied that it had to do with Xinerama, which I've never
used. However, the two new Xinerama settings (which I had never seen
before) had appeared in MythTV, including the Xinerama screen (which
was set to 0 with options for 0 or All) and the aspect ratio (which
was still at the default of 4:3) which I had to change to 16:9. That
corrected the aspect ratio. Obviously MythTV never thought I had
Xinerama enabled before. I do have the following in my Xorg.0.log:
(II) Initializing built-in extension XINERAMA
...which i *think* is the build-in nVidia extension. I always get
that, even with xorg-server 1.2, and as far as I can see it loads
regardless of any Option "Xinerama" setting in xorg.conf. Other than
that build in extension, there's no trace of xinerama on my system.
I guess xorg 1.3 changed the way in which it reports this to MythTV?
