pytivo aspect ratio all wrong when I send a movie

I set up pytivo a while back to pull video's off my tivo prior to a HD upgrade. Worked great.

Now I'm trying to send a few videos to my tivo and I'm having a bit of trouble with aspect ratio.

The movie (which is a .mp4) is showing an aspect ratio of 1920 x 704 when i look at the properties in windows.

If I stream it using one of my video streamers I get black bars top and bottom and the aspect ratio looks normal.

If I pytivo it to my tivo it fills the entire screen of my LCD tv and the picture looks a little tall. Definetly NOT the same way it looks when streamed.

Is there any way I can fix this?

I noticed this once before when trying to send a movie to my tivo but I wasn't really interested in this feature. Now I am and can't seem to get it to work correctly.

Thanks,

Roveer

Are you familiar with the Aspect/Zoom button modes? Do you have the mode set to "Panel"?

Yup, setting the screen to Panel fixed the aspect ratio. I'm so used to my outboard equipment locking the screen I didn't even think to try that. Thanks for the quick and on target reply.
