And there's your problem.  If you use an "Aspect Override," you're 
telling Myth, "I don't care about the real aspect of the video, display 
it my way, instead."  Set it to "Off" and everything works properly.  
Then, when you have a show you want to watch differently, use the Menu 
to change the Aspect.
