#8775 closed defect (Fixed)

Forced display aspect setting not honoured in TV recording playback

Reported by: reidjr_at_lineone_dot_net Owned by: danielk
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.25
Component: MythTV - Video Playback Version: Master Head
Severity: medium Keywords: Aspect Ratio TV
Cc: Ticket locked: no


I have a 720x576 modeline on a PAL 16:9 TV. By default myth treats this as a 4:3 display. To overcome this I use the "Seperate modes for gui and video" options, and set :

Gui 720x576 video 720x576 auto 16:9

and an Override mode for US content of:

Gui 720x480 video 720x480 auto 16:9

with these setting the display is treated as 16:9 for PAL LiveTV playback, or PAL/NTSC MythVideo? content. Playing any Recorded TV ( I only have PAL to test) treats the display as 4:3.

If in "Screen Settings" I also Set the GUI size to 720x576, and check "Use Gui Size for TV playback", the 16:9 aspect ratio is honored in recorded TV.

This bug can be seen on any display, if you force the "wrong" aspect ratio for your display.

My desktop 1680x1050 display exhibits same behavior if a forced 4:3 aspect is applied, recorded TV treats display as 16:9, LiveTv? honors 4:3 setting.

I just tested the latest trunk and this appears to be functioning correctly there.
