I’m getting a very vertically squished aspect ratio (everyone very short & fat) in 0.60. Here is my setup (and additional comments/thoughts in brackets):
ATV Take 2, upgraded to 2.2
ATV Flash 3.3.4 via the Apple Core patchstick
VIDEO_TS folders ripped movie only by MTR 3.0r14m
—(they play fine on my MacBook)
Playback via NitoTV 0.60 & DVDPlayback.framework
—(because I get no on screen feedback when I press the remote buttons so that means DVDPlayback.framework, right?)
Smart Installer has been applied
Perian 1.1.2 is installed
ATV set to output at 1080i
—(When I try 720p I get sound but blank (black screen) in NitoTV (only))
—(Component cables–my TV/stereo do not have HDMI capability)
My TV is 16:9 NTSC and capable of up to 1080i but not p
File Playback Mode set to QuickTime/mPlayer/Mixed does not change anything
—(Which it shouldn’t cause I’m playing back via DVDPlayback.framework right?)
MPlayer arguments for -aspect, -monitoraspect set at 16:9, 19:13 etc don’t change anything
—(Again, which it shouldn’t cause I’m playing back via DVDPlayback.framework right?)
I have about 200 movies ripped from DVD on my USB drive, I think all but two of them played with the correct aspect ratio when I was using ATV Flash 3.3.2/NitoTV 0.57. They all (including the two exceptions) played with the correct aspect ratio on my MacBook. Now that I have upgraded everyone is short & fat on my ATV. My quicktime HD movie trailers downloaded from apple.com and other content streamed from the iTunes store play fine.
For what it’s worth, I do NOT get the white dot that edmartin mentioned in his earlier posts referring to 0.56.
Any suggestions? This is otherwise a great product, worth the price even without CouchSurfer/Jamon/etc… For now I think I will try downgrading to 3.3.3, and if necessary back to 3.3.2.
