You can first scale it to the proper resolution, and then expand it.

-vf scale=800:-2,expand=800:600

(Assuming, of course, your display is 800x600 -- change accordingly.)

The problem with this is that it doesn't benefit from hardware scaling
so it's not quite as efficient, but this isn't likely a problem unless
you have a CPU under, say, 1Ghz.
