Looks like the zoom settings are seperate for live tv, and video 'divx' playback.

For me I found it a PITA as we spend most of our time watching freeview channels on the media centre with only the occasional thing on the analogue feed. Getting anyone else in the house to change zoom was just too hard.
I was SO pleased when I found that W7 finally did it intelligently.
