that did it. thx!

..but it lead to another problem wich is now related to my tv :(
in order to get the picture to fill the screen, in 640x350 mode i have to
stretch the height of the disply to maximum and still the upper and lower
edges will not reach the screen-edges. this works definitely better with a
640x480-picture, wich i can successfully stretch far enough to let 640x352
movies fill that 16:9 screen.

now the question will be: how to get mplayer with vesa:vidix to always use
640x480 as output wich is a bit sad, because i actually hoped to leave the
picture as untouched as possible using 640x350. they could have built that
hardware of my tv a bit more thoughtfull.

any suggestions?
