Neo HDV aspect ratio problems

I recently upgraded from Connect HD to Neo HDV. I'm a Sony Vegas user. Anyway, since upgrading to Neo, I'm having some aspect ratio problems that I didn't have before. WMP playback of Cineform clips, both those converted by Connect HD and Neo now look vertically stretched to 4:3 aspect ratio whereas they used to show properly as 16:9 before the upgrade.
Virtualdub also now messes up the aspect ratio (it didn't before). So does DVDit Pro HD. I'm sure it's just a simple playback flag issue or something like that.

The latest update of Neo fixed this problem.

That is good, I don't how the bug occured or how it was fixed. Now I don't have to find out. :)

I'm reviving this old thread because this problem has resurfaced in the last several revisions of Neo HDV.

Not that it's a really big deal, but it's probably easy to fix.

The problem is that when I watch 1440x1080 clips in WMP, the 16:9 gets squished into 4:3.

The reason this is a important to me is that when I render a Cineform codec master it looks squished when I try to play it in WMP. I can't see it at the right aspect ratio until I render it into m2t or AVCHD or some other format.

I know you guys can do it because you did it before.

I'm running Vista 64 Ultimate on my new machine. My old one was a P4 with XP Pro. I've had the same problem with both machines.

WMP is supposed to show the right aspect ratio right?

I also have Vista x64 and see the same problem, but not for every Cineform avi. I can't figure out why WMP does this, since no other media player does.

Does it have to do with the Cineform decoder registry quality setting?

The is a known issue with Window Media Player under Vista, everywhere else it works.

OK, I see now. The aspect ratio looks fine in Media Player Classic.
