[mythtv-users] Wrong aspect ratio, weird fonts after upgrading to ubuntu gutsy 7.10

Hi all,

Just upgraded to Gutsy (7.10) and I've started to have problems when viewing
recordings. My box is connected to a Samsung LCD TV (16:9) which has a
resolution of 1360x768, before upgrading when I watched 4:3 material with
zoom off it played well just with two black bars on the side; now it fills
all the screen. On the other side, 16:9 material gets letter boxed and it
should not.

A part from that, OSD fonts look ugly, don't know if it is related.

I've found this in mythfrontend log:

2007-10-21 01:55: 43.848 Display Rect  left: 0, top: 0, width: 1360, height:
768, aspect: 1.33333
2007-10-21 01:55:43.848 Video Rect    left: 5, top: 6, width: 517, height:
564, aspect: 1.33333

As you can see, 1360x768 should never be a 4:3 (1.33) aspect ratio but a
16:9 (1.77). Anyone knows what's happening?
