It has to be possible *somehow*, 'cause softdevice works here (on a 4:3 CRT TV) without any scaling problems, OSD has always the correct size and 16:9 content has the typical black borders on the top and the bottom...

I think this comes from the fact that AFAIK at least one of the softdevice coders uses a Matrox G550 for video output ;) Greetings, Markus
