I'd *really a lot* like to get some good pictures (not screen grabs; I want the TV bezels visible) for this section, illustrating the combinations in question. No flash; you'll have to use a tripod.

I'm a moron. I actually meant to link to Aspect ratio, which I had already written; I guess we'd better merge them.

Okay, after seeing no dispute, I have carried out the merger. --Gregturn 18:39, 13 February 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for doing that Greg. I was a little too close to my own writeup to be able to figure out how best to glue the other guy's into it. --Baylink 20:46, 13 February 2006 (UTC)
perhaps some more info on configuration in MythTV which is why people are here after all -Paul


So, about those black bars when having a true 4:3 show on 16:9. Is it possible to configure MythTV to display grey bars and not black?

Those are sent by the station, so not without cropping and replacing.--Steve Adeff 15:38, 22 August 2006 (UTC)
No, not those. Correct me if I am wrong, but I get a 4:3 picture from the network, and "MythTV" adds the black padding/borders on each side to fit my 16:9 layout. In "Standard" mode, ffmpeg is used, and in "mpeg2" mode libmpeg2 is used, am I correct? So if ffmpeg is used, the API should support changing the color (padcolor) of the stream, right? I might be way of now :-) --Hazze 20:08, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

MythTV's aspect ratio override options

Could someone explain exactly what all the mythtv aspect ratio options do? This article does a good job of explaining what the tv can do, but skips over MythTV's options. What I would like to do is force MythTV to stretch any video to full screen, so that I can use the settings on my tv to correct the aspect ratio. --Turpie 01:54, 9 October 2006 (UTC)
