x264 SAR issue

I have a strange issue when encoding DVB-T PAL broadcasts with x264. The broadcasts in question are 720x576 16:9 (ie. anamorphic). When I encode with x264 without specifying SAR, they end up as square pixel videos (ie 4:3 aspect). When I specify --sar 16:9 on the x264 command line, I get videos, that get played at 2.22:1 aspect. I tried mplayer, Windows Media Player, VLC... all play them that -- incorrect -- way. What gives? How do I properly encode 16:9 anamorphic video with x264?
