Excellent point! There was a miniseries I downloaded once that was labeled as "widescreen", but it was pretty obvious from the little network icon in the bottom right being cut in half that someone had used that one stupid filter for TMGEnc that does the same....I think the people who do this actually do believe that "This one goes up to eleven."

BTW, when the series came out on DVD I bought it so no harm was made to the movie company....fullscreen, but that's what I expected...
