[mythtv-users] AppleTV Fontend and picture aspect ratio

I'm using an AppleTV as a mythtv frontend (using some of the prebuilt 
dmg packages) but I'm having a problem with the size of the picture on 
my screen.  My mythtv frontend downstairs (a linux machine) seems to 
output a picture that fits the screen perfectly when 16:9 widescreen is 
chosen on the TV. On the AppleTV it seems to output a (live tv) picture 
that seems to fit more of a 4:3 aspect ratio even when 16:9 is chosen on 
the TV.  The MythTV menu screens fill the screen perfectly however, so 
it shows mythtv can output a picture that is the correct size, it just 
doesn't seem to do it for live/recorded TV.

Is there a setting somewhere on the MythTV frontend that controls the 
size of the picture/aspect ratio displayed when watching live/recorded TV ?
