I do not agree with you, the aspect ratio for 16/9 is 1.77 and not 1.85. The error is not acceptable.

I am currently working on a launcher that will create an ini file and launch automaticaly the movie in its correct aspect ratio. I will use two methods :

- theorical correction taking into account the desktop resolution (the correction is not the same for 720x576 or for 768x576) and TV format (4/3 or 16/9)
- visual correction : a circle will be display on screen, and you will calibrate the correction with a trackbar until the circle will be really a circle. That will correct too the distorsion caused by bad settings of your TV.
