    Use the Aspect button on your TiVo Remote to go from Panel to Zoom mode.

    That worked like a charm. Thanks. I didn't know that the TiVo remote had that functionality.

    Just looking for a guide on how to use Videora. Couldn't find much on their site or forum.

    Can someone point me to a guide please?

    Thank you in advance.

    Thanks for this great tip. It also works in VisualHub on the Mac. Go into the advanced settings, and type the string under: "Extra ffmpeg Flags". I played with the settings to get the ones that I needed, eventually settling on:
    "-s 640x360 -padtop 60 -padbottom 60". The original post indicated that the numbers might need to be divisible by 16, however, that hasn't seemed to matter.

    Again, thanks!

    I have a 16:9 TV now, so here's the new settings I'm using.

    2.35 -> 16:9
    -s 720x352 -padtop 64 -padbottom 64

    1.57 or 16:10 -ish -> 16:9
    -s 636x480 -padleft 42 -padright 42
