And it should, it used to look the same on this setup as well before the
upgrade to 0.20.  In off mode it makes the picture look squeezed in from
the sides.
Not as bad as say displaying 4:3 content on a 16:9 set.  But bad
enough.  It's like myth is scaling it to some smaller unknown
resolution.  If I had to take a guess, 640 x 480?
