[mythtv] PiP Aspect Wrong in SVN

I believe that Myth think the screen is 400mm x 300mm.

I'm not sure how all the parts go together, but it seems that the code
is adjusting for the screen aspect when calculating the size of PiP
window.  Then the PiP image is resized and copied into the main video
image.  Then the combined image is displayed.  It the process of
displaying the combined image, adjustments will be made for the actual
screen dimensions.
So adjusting the PiP window size for the screen, would result in the
screen adjustments being made twice for the PiP window and once for the
main video window.
Is this accurate ?

The original patch in ticket #462 works perfectly and I see no signs of
the issue reference in ticket #500.

But what does it think the physical screen dimensions are?

This could be related to ticket #500.

My guess is that MythTV thinks the screen is something like
400mm x 300mm...
