    MediaPortal Version: Beta + SVN
    MediaPortal Skin: Blue3Wide & BleazleWide_V8
    Windows Version: Win7 64
    Video Card: HD4870
    h.264 Video Codec: Microsoft DTV-DVD
    Remote: Hauppauge 45-button

    I was trying out the skin mentioned above, when I pressed remote: 'up' during playback. Suddenly the aspect ratio changed from the correct 16:9 (on a 16:10 display) to 1100px wide, 1600px tall. This *without* changing the aspect ratio setting in media portal. I can't reproduce this error, and more importantly I can't reverse it. If I do change the mediaportal aspect ratio setting it behaves as one would expect - if the source was this odd size.

    I tried renaming the file and reimporting it, and I have tried other videos. Only that one file is affected, and only in MediaPortal.

    The source is a h264, mkv-file in 852x688 resolution.

    Suggestions on how to revert this are very welcome!
