Cc: Ticket locked: no


Since svn 20227 something has changed with aspect ratio. while watching a movie in 16:9 I have black Bars left and right. On my 16:10 display 16:9 video is displayed in fullscreen. I use "-O XineramaMonitorAspectRatio?=1.7777" for my 16:9 display and "-O XineramaMonitorAspectRatio?=1.6" for my 16:10 Display. Both logfiles are created with "-v all".

Firstly, can you roll back your working copy to see if the cause is r20247 or r20252? That would be extremely helpful.

Secondly, can you generate (or not trim) those logs from when mythfrontend is started - I'm looking for the Xinerama/screen info that the frontend reports at startup. Additionally can you be more specific about your screen setup for each of those displays i.e. the number and size of screens, which of those screens the frontend is using, the override setting etc.

And finally (!), can you try each display without the XineramaMonitorAspectRatio? override. I'm wondering whether r20252 fixed an issue you were working around.

I set up two screens with twinview (0: 1920x1200 / 1: 1920x1080). After I played around with the settings, I found out, that I have to use XineramaScreen?. I used "-geometry .." before. Ticket can be closed. Thx for your reply.
