Hi,

some shows though being sent in native 16:9 still have black borders at top and bottom of the pics. To some extent this can be reduced but not completely removed by setting Overscan to 10% (don't confuse with Overscan Compensation) in xineliboutputs video menu. After some investigation i found a very simple patch that allows one to set Overscan to values > 10 % (i limited to 20% in the patch). Furthermore i changed the sequence of the settings in xineliboutputs Video menu to make Overscan the topmost setting, so one now could configure some User keys in keymacros.conf. Feel free to play around with it.
