[mythtv-users] Xine Mplayer Fullscreen Lirc

Ok got a few questions.  Don't know if this is right mailing list, but 
it is through mythtv i use xine and mplayer.

First off when mplayer and xine play, they play at full screen, but the 
fullscreen doesn't take up the full screen on my tv.  When i watch tv it 
It's almost like mplayer and xine play in a widescreen format.  At the 
top and bottom there is a black line.  it's full screen right and left.
So when I watch a widescreen movie, either one i made in xvid format (i 
like it like that, i don't crop or resize, so shoot me).  It sucks cause 
it's like widescreen twice.  Not very pretty.

Second lirc works fine with xine, but with mplayer volume up and down 
work, pause, osd and quit work.  However seek does not.  I pust seek +/- 
whatever and it doesn't fastforward or rewind.  I even change the 
buttons that are increasing volume to seek, because obviously mplayer 
can recognize that button since it changes the volume, but as soon as i 
put seek +60 nothing happens.  Any ideas?

I downloaded the new mplayer pre1.05 or whatever the newest is,  because 
i was using 0.92.  Thought that would fix it but it's not. 

Any help would be appreciated.
