I have found that sometimes the video output driver is what causes the scaling
to fail.  Because of the scaling issues, I am assuming that you are not using a
full featured dvb card. If you are using Xine, you might want to test various
video output drivers.  Some people have luck with xvmc, but XV seems to
generally work for more setups.  It really depends on the video card you are
using.  Also, make sure you have uncommented the #define in the Xine makefile
for yaepg.

look in yaepg.c for settings you can hardcode.
