Yes I can zoom in the picture to fill the screen, but it just makes the quality of the video that much worse to look at. You lose detail as well as softening of the picture.

I guess that's one of the few benefits of my old VIP 612.

Considering the lack of posts lately, I guess there hasn't been much "true" HD stuff on the channel. Very frustrating that so little of what TCM HD is playing is in HD, and even more frustrating that there is no way to know in advance what is in HD. I DVR'ed the entire night of Disney stuff last night. Not one show, except for maybe the animated shorts, was in HD. And this is a new contract with Disney. So unless Disney does not have HD masters of these shows/movies (possible for some, but surely not all), I have to wonder how much effort TCM is making to acquire HD material.

I have seen a great deal of HD material on TCM. The Disney material was mostly transferred earlier and not specifically for TCM but looked extremely good. In recent weeks some HD titles have included Close Encounters, The Harder They Fall, The Wild One, Gypsy, Auntie Mame too name a few.

There's HD stuff on there all the time, after awhile there's no point saying "Look here, looking there." Pretty easy to see right away, especially on the widescreen era movies. Upscaled ones tend to have the not-quite-fitting the screen TCM look, while the HD ones do.
