I have been sampling COZI occasionally and have noted that they have always shown 704x480i (16:9) using MyHD to look at the PSIP live.
Many of the programs I remember coming from an age when everything was 4:3 but the programs fill the 16:9 screen, "I Spy" current on being an exception.
The programs must be zoomed or stretched.
The reported postage stamp sized programs thus may have been caused by the preprocessing of 4:3 material to be broadcast in 16:9, but the process being done twice resulting in the too narrow picture with two sets of black bars at the sides. NOT!
I had expected to see (4:3) at times which also could have produced the too narrow picture with two sets of black bars at the sides.
My HDTV has the ability to put both the VGA (MyHD) and DVI (Fusion7 Dual) on the screen at the same time so, on the left is the too narrow picture with two sets of black bars at the sides displayed by Fusion and on the right the MyHD correct picture with just one set of black bars.
I now see that the Fusion on screen controller is also too narrow clearly indicating that Fusion is remembering (4:3) when it should not.
So, Fusion and "Duke and Rat" tuner code is defective, in the Fusion case this is known.
