I understand
So i need to generate (after the cropping and deinterlacing to 720x576 50p)
a filter syntax (within the videofilter) which transforms the 720x576 4:3
content to a pillarbox 1050x576 quare pixel video (with black bars at
sides) -> and THIS one I can rescale to HD.

if yes, has anyone more experience with that?
