THEMING: themeinfo.xml fails to adhere to aspect and resolution

Reported by: troy.sobotka@… Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: major Milestone: unknown
Component: mythtv Version: unknown

Cc: Ticket locked: no


Summary: When placing aspect ratio and resolution into the themeinfo.xml file, much of the information is ignored. For example, placing 16x10 in the aspect ratio still yields a stretched image. Further, placing aspect correct resolutions in the resolution stanza often remains ignored.

This seems most noticeable with any resolution above 1280x720. It would be ideal if it supported the aspect ratio adjustments even at the lower resolutions. This is an unfortunate bug as it results in skewed designs and prevents the development of quality themes.

Resolution: invalid
Status: newclosed

"wide" themes are 1280x720 based, and scaled to the output resolution. Non-"wide" themes are 800x600 based, and scaled to the output resolution.

Feature request without patch, essentially.

In the themeinfo.xml file, it says that you can use 4x3, 4x5, 16x19, 16x10 etc.

"<!-- Aspect ratio of the theme. (Required)

Maybe be: 4:3, 5:4, 16:9 or 16:10 -->"

Placing any of those into the themeinfo.xml file does nothing. I'd suspect the proper response should be to take the aspect ratio and scale the resolutions accordingly to the destination output?

As it is now, it simply does a stretch which ignores the aspect ratio.

Is the aspect ratio purely an informational addition that was never intended to do anything other than informational purposes in the appearance settings?

Yes, it's purely informational.
