Auto switch aspect ratio

Another cool feature of the TivoHD is when you are watching a non-HD channel in 4:3 aspect ratio, and go to the Tivo menu, it automatically switches to 16:9. I just think that is so cool! It is certainly unnecessary, but a really nice touch.

Even better - when watching 4x3 content on the TivoHD (in native mode, or any mode that will push out 480i/p), it displays it in 480i/p - 16x9! So the Guide, play bar, channel banner, etc., all show up with the full screeen width, even if you have it set to panel mode. (This only works over HDMI.)

I wish the S3 did this. The S3 sends out all 480i/p as 4x3.
