I think the key is videores/displayres and if this number > 1.5 you will 
notice it.
i.e. (16/9)/(352/480)=2.4 which should be very bad. (last comment in above 
(16/9)/(720/480)=1.19 which is close to 1 which should be ok. even better if 
in 4:3 (0.8) but will have extra spacing between chars.
DVB SD (16/9)/(720/576)=1.42 which is not good by not as bad as the first 

the patch should make it always perfect as horizontal scaling always works 
this way but not the previous way.
