OK, that makes sense, sort of. Allthought I recall when I set up fbtv, that
I hade to set up a resolution that matched it's desried resolution, so I
don;t believe it's actually scaleing things. Aklso in looking at it's def
in /etc/fb.modes, I note that I did not have to do anything to define it's
color depth.

So, you are syaing thta my problem is with the "size" of the files I am

If so how can I amke the "size" of these, the same as the ones I'm getting
with fbtv? Or would I be better of defining a ne frame buffer mode toi
match the "size: of the ones I am recording? This is all initial setup, so
I really have no exisiting files I'm interested in.

How can I set up a frame buffer def to match the "size" and color depth of
the files I am presenlty recording?

How can I change the "size" of the files I am recording?
