Do you mean aspect ratio 2.21:1 ?

+const char *VideoAspectString[] = { "4:3",
+                                    "16:9",
+                                    "2.21:9"
+                                  };

> The changes since version 1.7.6:
>
> - The new function cDevice::GetVideoSize() returns the size and aspect 
> ratio
>  of the video material currently displayed. This function is used to 
> determine
>  the proper size of the OSD. Plugin authors should implement this function 
> in
>  classes derived from cDevice, if they are able to replay video.
> - The OSD and font sizes are now defined in percent of the actual video 
> display
>  size. The maximum OSD size has been raised to 1920x1080, to allow full
>  screen OSD on HD systems.
> - The OSD size is now automatically adjusted to the actual video display
>  (provided the output device implements the GetVideoSize() function).
> - cFrameDetector::Analyze() now syncs on the TS packet sync bytes (thanks 
> to
>  Oliver Endriss for reporting broken index generation after a buffer 
> overflow).
>
> Have fun!
