 I have a 720x576 modeline on a PAL 16:9 TV. By default myth treats this as
 a 4:3 display. To overcome this I use the "Seperate modes for gui and
 video" options, and set :
  Gui 720x576 video 720x576 auto 16:9

 and an Override mode for US content of:
  Gui 720x480 video 720x480 auto 16:9

 with these setting the display is treated as 16:9 for PAL LiveTV playback,
 or PAL/NTSC MythVideo content.  Playing any Recorded TV ( I only have PAL
 to test) treats the display as 4:3.

 If in "Screen Settings" I '''also''' Set the GUI size to 720x576, and
 check "Use Gui Size for TV playback", the 16:9 aspect ratio is honored in
 recorded TV.
