I have a Sony KDS-55a2000 LCoS hdtv. Subtitles are cut off on the bottom so I used the -vf expand=-60:-60:30:30 custom option in mencoder that was suggested a while ago. This fixes the issue but leaves me with borders on all sides of picture. I was able to get video to fill the entire screen with no sub cut off by changing it to -vf expand=-60:-40:15:15. My concern though is how that affects the aspect ratio of the video, if at all. I tried searching in these forums and online but am unable to wrap my head around how exactly the -vf expand option works. Any guidance would be supremely appreciated.

I'd also like to say how pleased I am with this software and its support. It solved many frustrations I had with other streaming solutions.
