Doh! All those years of traning my brain to ignore those top two rows
of VBI data... Would be nice if there were some way crop the VBI bits
off of SD broadcasts only without losing 2 rows of dots from HD
recordings. Is there any easy way to define a unique vertical scaling
setting that would only impact SD resolution and aspect ratio
