Thanks for the tip Roger! It took my 1080i file and made it a 640x480
resolution even though I have a 720p set. Can you point out what I
would modify in the script to make it not do scale down past my max
As an aside, this is all a PITA... it'd be nice if mythtv had more
built in support for this sort of thing.
