Good to hear.  Thanks for the reply.  Someone on the Gentoo forum
pointed me to this:


Which says "With Xorg 7.2, MythTV detects Xinerama as being active at
all times and so will ignore the display sizes when calculating the
aspect ratio for displaying video" and suggests the SQL to set the
aspect ratio.

That's definately what I'm seeing,  However I've had xorg-x11 7.2 for
some time.  It seems that what they're describing only started when I
upgraded xorg-server to 1.3.  In any case, I've got everything
