[mythtv-users] Resolution for PAL analgue TV

I use 480x480 for my analogue card.

I've found myth/drivers to be unstable at any other resolution - i.e.
you get crashes in the backend and eventually you have to reboot.

My DVB card records at whatever resolution the signal is transmitted at,
so usually 720x576.

In the mythtv ASettings -->T Vsettings --> Recording Profiles -->
Software Encoders on the Image Size screen.
