Have a quick read of the wiki regarding theme design & you'll notice 
that 4:3 themes are based on 800x600 resolution and 16:9 themes are 
based on 1280x720 resolution.

Mythtv rescales all images based on your screen resolution or the X & Y 
display size you set in the appearance menu.

What you need to do is rescale your own image to 800x600 - all will be 
well then.
