I first problem (display not defaulting to the correct aspect ratio)
is probably because you need to add some DisplaySize settings to your
Xorg / Xfree86 config file to let Myth know that your display is 16:9
/ 4:3. Search the archives for more details, it's been covered many

Sorry but I can't help with the second problem, i've never tried
writing DVB-T recordings to a DVD (yet). It's probably worth noting
that the DVB-T transmission has a resolution that's perfectly suited
for display on a PAL TV (at least it is here in the UK, I can't
believe it would be different in Aus or set-top-boxes would have to
scale the image before displaying it), so that's unlikely to be the
source of the problem.
