Hi guys,

I have a Hauppauge HVR-1200 tv tuner hooked up to my sky tv decoder box via s-video (analogue mode). The monitor is 16/10 widescreen. I have set the aspect ratio to 16/9 in Powercinema, and the same in the Sky box. But still, I only get a 4:3 picture in Powercinema (two black bars on the sides), and I`m sure that is not the correct aspect ratio of the broadcast, because the picture looks squashed sideways.

Any idea what`s going on?

I get this in mediaportal so i set aspect ratio to stretch and it comes out correct.

Yeah I can get it to work in KMPlayer by messing with the aspect ratio settings, but my recordings still remain 4:3. Not great.

The broadcasts are 4:3 anamorphic to produce  a 16:9 picture If you are recording to MPEG2 you can just edit the headers to change the aspect ratio to 16:9.

Thanks, how do I edit the headers of an .mpg file?

Hi, I use DVDPatcher which is freeware from: http://www.wincesoft.de/html/dvdpatcher.html  It works really well and doesn't require installation. I have to make sure I change the headers in every frame  (it is an option) otherwise it doesn't work. I use it with a Hauppauge PVR-250.

Cheers,

Matt.
