Can anybody please tell me how to extract from my uk tivo using tytool 6 r 3 and maintaining the correct aspect ratio. Currently all of my widescreen recordings are being squashed into a full screen format although they play OK on the television.

It's probably your PC Mpeg player rather than the 16:9 information being lost in the recording.

I thought that as I was viewing in windows media player 9 but I get the same problem in PowerDVD and WinDVD. :(

Looking through other posts I found the solution. It seems that when tytools was bringing the ty files across the encoding was full screen and not the original wide screen.

I am now using tytools to bring the programmes across in mpg and then using DVDPatcher to change the header to 16:9.

Now all works perfectly. :D
