vdr-xine's setup menu allows you to set scaling factors for 4:3 
and 16:9 images. So setting X and Y factor for 4:3 images to 133 
will stretch the 4:3 image proportionally to 16:9, cutting off 
some part on top and bottom of the image. In case such a 4:3 
stream contains an 16:9 image (e. g. a movie), you'll only loose 
the black bars on top and bottom ;-)

In case you have a 16:9 broadcast which carries a 4:3 image the 
4:3 scaling option won't help you much, as it does only look at 
the aspect ratio and not at any black bars contained in the 
image, so it wouldn't make use of the 4:3 factors. In such a case 
you may want to change the scaling factors for 16:9 images to 
avoid the black bars on the left and right side of the image, but 
it is a bit annoying that you'll have to change this setting over 
and over.

Be aware though, that most movies show an image which is 2.1:1 
and therefore you'll even see black bars on top and bottom when 
such a movie is broadcast 16:9 and you have a 16:9 TV set.
