I've noticed a slight bug with Myth's aspect ratio handling:  It always 
uses the monitor's aspect ratio to determine the output ratio, even if the 
window isn't full screen.  So, my monitor's aspect ratio is 4:3 but I 
set Myth to run in a small 16:9 window in the corner of my desktop (hey, I 
like to watch music videos while I'm working :).  With Myth's aspect ratio 
set to 4:3 is fills the window (i.e. it displays the video at 16:9, which 
is wrong.  At 4:3 it should be leaving black bars down the side since the 
window has a 16:9 aspect).  If you set Myth to 16:9 then it shows the 
video really really wide as it stretches it as if the window was 4:3.
