Hi I am glad that you like my patch!

I just want to clarify so I understand what you want. If the stream is
non-leter-boxed you want to stretch it so it fills the screen whiteout
keeping the aspect ratio?

But I do not promise that I will work on it right now. It was some time
since I worked with it so I do not have the development environment setup
right now. And it is beautiful weather here i Sweden so I don spend that
much time at my computer :)

By the way witch version of mythtv are you using? Is the patch compiling in
the trunk version of mythtv?
