[mythtv-users] nuvexport of HDTV shows retains black borders

I have tried a handful of tests and I do not know how
to get around this problem.  I have an HD3000 card
captuirng OTA DTV.  The resulting captured,
non-widesreen shows have a black border around them
and the widescreen shows have the black border on top
and on bottom.  When I use nuvexport to XviD the black
bordrs remain in the resulting .avi file.  When I crop
the overscan (closed captioning), the overscan does go
away but the black bordres remain.  So it appears that
the captured shows do not get transmitted with black
borders because mythtranscode seems to be feeding the
show without black borders to nuvexport.  The
resulting .avi still has black borders though.  The
captured shows still have a blackborder when viewed
through mythfrontend.

I am not bothered so much by mythfrontend showing the
black borders (although if it didn't that would be a
plus) because I can adjust the aspect ratio but I
would like the .avi to not have black borders.

Any suggestions or debugging tips?
