I have a widescreen TV! The entry in the settings has no effect here.

I am using vdr-1.1.22 and the recommended dvb drivers with a Nova-T
(i.e a budget card) and a DXR3 for output.
I have tried the follwing channels so far:
BBC 1,2,3,4,News 24, ITV 1,2,News, C4, C5, FTN, Sky News, UK History,
TMF, The HITS.
I can tune to all of the above with no problems, though there is
the weird replay with search effect I mentioned earlier.
