I want to generate a test chart for use on a 4:3 PAL SDI monitor, and  
will have to do a pixel aspect translation I presume, as the program  
to generate the chart works with square pixels.   See
the "Test Generator Program" heading at

and the chart I'll use is the first at

there is an option to the program (appropriately called "tig"), -m,  
that takes as an argument <xres>x<yres>.  What would be the best  
settings to use, given the pixel differences between SDI video and  
graphics (per se)?

any help appreciated.
