Because we were airplaying stuff and it was still slightly letterboxed by about an inch on each side. Also it didn't scale to that size, it was a few pixels off, in photoshop.

My brother told me that 1367.66666 repeating is the exact number for 16.9, but don't quote me.

Here you go.

Take 16 and divide by 9 = 1.7777 (1.78).

Now take any known vertical resolution number and multiply by 1.78 to get the horizontal resolution.

.....or take any known horizontal resolution number and divide by 1.78 to get the vertical resolution.

So 1366x768 is 16x9 (1.78) aspect ratio.
