I know this is a bit of a tangent, but that part about using the full
16:9 on sources which are really 16:9 but stuffed into 4:3 intrigues
me.  Are you manually changing Myth's view mode when you watch (which
I sometimes try), or is there some elusive recording or playback
option I'm missing that will automatically do that by detecting such a
case?  I just hate watching stuff with black bars ALL the way around
now that I have a 16:9 tv.
