Thanks for your reply, but can you please stop posting in riddles? Are
all your posts like this?

I know all these options and tried mkvmerge first. As you can see in my
last post, the video dimensions reported by mkvinfo are correct.

|  + Video track
|   + Pixel width: 624
|   + Pixel height: 352
|   + Display width: 624
|   + Display height: 352

It doesn't matter whether I use mkvmerge or mkvproedit, the result is
the same and doesn't change anything as the values it sets are already

I'm not the expert and don't know what HandBrakeCLI reports. Maybe it's
the dimensions of the video stream and not the dimensions of the
container. And only the internal player of MythTV has problems with it,
all other players I tried display the video with the correct aspect ratio.
