[mythtv] Widescreen composite out?

Hi everyone,

I recently converted an AppleTV into a mythfrontend, it's working very well.
Unfortunately the people I made it for cling to their old wide-screen 
CRT television, so the video input is composite.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to set the proper ratio for 
the resolution.

MythTV currently letterboxes 16:9 material even further and 4:3 material 
is stretched out.

I have tried the "Different mode for GUI & Video" option, but then 
MythTV would only play in a portion of the screen. (So a big chunk of 
the desktop would be visible.)
I wonder if that's a flaw of XFCE, because the "Screen Setup" thing also 
did not work.

I've added a resolution to the xorg.conf file which I thought was 
wide-screen, but as always the resolution changer, or nvidia-settings, 
ignore these.
