Windows 7: Windows 7 Media Center Aspect Ratio problem

Changing the aspect ratio in the Project tab does not get rid of the black bands in the presentation pane video clip which were incorrectly put there by WLMM.
This is a bug!

Why don't you report it to MS and see what they say. Maybe we learn something. Could be that we both are doing something wrong.

The screen dump shows the Preview Pane correctly filled with a 16:9 video frame, without distortion or black bands.

The video clip frame in the storyboard panel show that WLMM has laterally squashed the 16:9 data to 4:3 and inserted black bands to refill the 16:9 frame.

It should not do this. It seems to have lost the aspect ratio control when it prepares the storyboard panel contents.

I really think this is a bug, and if I knew how to log it with the MS developer I would do so!
