  Description     : VDR plug-in to enlarge 4:3 letterbox format on widescreen

 The Avards (Automatic Video Aspect Ratio Detection and Signaling) plug-in for
 the Linux Video Disc Recorder VDR enlarges widescreen movies, that are sent in
 a 4:3 letterbox format. This is accomplished by changing the WSS signal sent
 to the display.
 If a program is broadcasted in letterboxed 4:3 it would normally be displayed
 with black bars on the left, right, top and bottom edges of a 16:9 display.
 By manipulatin the WSS (wide screen signaling), the Avards plug-in tells the
 display to enlarge the picture.
 The plug-in requires the DVB firmware version to be at least f42623 or newer.
