Specifically I had the Twinpact (4:3) as the full screen with video
(16:9) overlayed. If you switch between solely showing the Twinpact
and then PiP the width jumps around which I think is very undesirable, I
would think its better to have consistency or a switch in the Settings
to allow people to choose perhaps.
