No official fix that I'm aware of. The problem is that nuvexport forces all 
recordings to 4:3 format whether or not you want it to. (Hint: It should 
really be a user defined option!). You can make a quick change to DVD.pm to 
use 16:9 instead.

ffmpeg/DVD.pm make the following change:
In the section marked:
# Force to 4:3 aspect ratio

Replace or comment:
	$self->{'out_aspect'} = 1.3333;

	$self->{'out_aspect'} = 1.7777;
