I have one box connected up to a 32" lcd and one box connected to a 50" plasma.
On the 32" full sreen 16:9 gives me full screen 16:9... on the 50" plasma, I get
bars... still trying to tweak that....

I'm just using the default xorg.conf settings... not mode lines or
anything like that.

My shows are crisp and clean... but I'm only using this for HDTV and DVDs.

Huh? Are you talking about using the mythfrontend or mythtv program and
watching 'live-tv' without recording it... buffering it... or are you
asking something
else... I don't watch any 'live' tv. I use mythweb to schedule all of my shows
and I watch them after they have been recorded.
