I like this "toggle" idea.  In Australia all DVB-T transmissions are 16:9 and 
I only uses "Off" and "Fill".  "Fill" is when there is a 4:3 show with black 
bars.  Currently I've patched MythTV so "w" alternates between the two.  If 
enough people only use "Off" and one other aspect it would be easy to add an 
"Playback Group" option.
