Yes, as far as I understand your question. It's an HDTV..

I would think yes, but am unsure exactly what you mean. The rest of  
the screen certainly is fine and knows it's a 720p output (1280x720).  
Is there some place to tell it aspect ratio as well?

Note it's ONLY the preview that's wrong... Looks like it's also wrong  
in the non-wide version (it's mythcenter, BTW... my bad), though the  
symptoms are a bit different (the bottom third doesn't even display,  
rather than displaying then freezing).
