AFAIK, the software encoding stuff always assumes the source is 4:3 (I 
have to manually change the aspect to 16:9 to fit stuff on my widescreen 
telly when playing movies back).  What I'd love to see is a way of setting 
the default aspect ratio that the card is capturing, since most of the 
stuff I record is in anamorphic 16:9 to begin with.  I did look into 
fixing it a while ago, but couldn't work out where the assumption was made 
about the source being 4:3.
