are you absolutely sure? I think I remember (good ol' times) my Amiga
having a different aspect ratio when using NTSC modes or a (true) NTSC
monitor .. 640x200 vs. 640x256 ..

from PC times something like 640x400 vs. 640x480 has stuck in my mind,
which would mean an aspect ratio of 4:2.5 (or 8:5) ..

you might want to try this :)
