I know that you are located in Chicago but after reading a few of your informative posts thought perhaps you could answer a question that bugs me to no end about the Cincinnati Fox station, WXIX.
I know that most of the programming originating from this station is not native 480P or 16x9. All of this material is usually zoomed in on and stretched slightly to get a 14x9 picture. I realize that a lot of people prefer this method as the lesser of two evels. So be it.
But what really annoys me about the station is that the Fox programs produced and distributed in 480P and 16x9 are also often zoomed and stretched to 14x9 from the 4x3 source or, even worse, the 16x9 picture is zoomed in and stretched slightly to get a 14x9 picture with a still noticible horizontal squeeze.
Is this the way all Fox stations are or is WXIX doing something wrong? And if they are doing something wrong, mind giving them a call and letting them know how to use the equipment?
