[vdr] Showing aspect ratio or providing automatic widescreen switching signals

I just got a widescreen TV and put VDR in 16:9 mode. However there is still a 
lot of content still in 4:3 mode and it sometimes takes me a while to spot 
the short/fat people and switch the TV! It would help to see the aspect on 
the overlay when switching channels. Are there any plugins or patches that 
show the aspect on the overlay? Even better, are there any plugins that deal 
with providing automatic 16:9/4:3 switching signals for Scart leads? Of 
course a hardware mod would be required...
