Feature Request-Input specific default aspect ratios


I have two pvr 150s (SDTV) and a HDHomerun (HDTV).

Each has different display properties. I currently have the aspect ratio set to source.

However, Ideally I would like my 4:3 ratio for SDTV set to 115% zoom and my 16:9 ratio for HDTV set to 102% zoom.

My request is to be able to assign default aspect ratio by source. That way different tuners, which have different behavior, such as static on top few pixels, or vertical edge distortions on edge row of pixels, etc, could have a default aspect ratio, thus as you changed channels, the aspect ratios would automatically change for ideal settings based on that input device.


If you like the idea, please reply that you do so it gets acknowledged by the SageTV developers.

Thanks for a great product!

Take a look at nielm's Automatic Aspect Ratio Switcher plugin which should do exactly what you want.

That did it.

Thanks for the tip. Perfect.

Now if only Sage could put auto-detection based on the black areas for the hd channels that broadcast 4:3 content during the day!
