 This patch fixes a small glitch in the OSD when starting to watch a 16:9

 Currently, when you start watching 16:9 live TV  the following happens ...
 the screen goes black and the OSD appears showing the tuner in use and the
 current program details.  The OSD seems is sized for a 4:3 aspect ratio
 (not taking up the full screen width), then once the tuner locks on and
 the picture appears, the OSD resizes to the
 full width of the screen.  It just looks a bit ugly and unpolished.

 This happens because the video player has a hard-coded assumption about
 the video it will start playing, and assume 4:3.  It uses this to setup a
 dummy video stream while waiting for the channel to tune.

 This patch sets up the dummy video stream to match the display aspect

 It's a bit of a hack, but it results in a much improved/polished behavior
 in most cases.
