I have a recording that is 4:3 but at start of recording is the end of another show that is 16:9
If I start watching this before the 4:3 show has started, channels plays at 16:9 for duration of the recording. However, if I start in middle of the 4:3 show, it correctly sets to 4:3
So it looks like channels is only checking aspect ratio when playback starts. Is it possible to improve on this behaviour?
