Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:
1. Start mythtv frontend with single display on.
2. Use xrandr to extend desktop to cover two displays. (The displays have different aspect ratios.)
3. Go to media library and start playback.

Or:
1. Use xrandr to extend desktop to cover two displays. (The displays have different aspect ratios.)
2. Start mythtv frontend. It seems to open in the primary display.
3. Go to media library and start playback.

Expect aspect ratio of the video to be correct (as it was with single display).
But it is different. Like vertical fill and horizontal fill even if only horizontal fill is selected in settings.

Workaround:
Set Appearance > Monitor aspect ratio in Setup of MythTV Frontend.
