Changed: Improved color reporting for DVD menus/subtitles

great, but video halts on aspect ratio change of the input source
really a great package. there is only that one issue i have:
when the aspect ratio of the input source changes (example: tv series 4:3 -> commercial break 16:9) the video halts -> only sound will go on.
you can handle the problem by turning off the "aspect ratio detection" in the settings, but afterwards you will have to select the correct aspect ratio manually for each tv channel or accept wrong aspect ratios with strange results.
