I thought of that, so I tried connecting the Mac Mini to my Cinema Display,
unfortunately I get the same behaviour. I'll probably try hooking my MBP to
the tv later this evening, but I'm not really expecting any revelations.
If I compensate for the horizontal stretch by forcing a v-stretch zoom, then
the recorded content is watchable. As long as nothing important happens in
the top or bottom part of the frame that is :-)
Very, very, odd... and frustrating.
