for all of the channels i listed in the previous station, they always show in 16:9 even if show SD material (will have black bars), the other couple hundred stations show in 4:3.
i have no clue why yours aren't showing up as 16:9. what does it say when you show the details of the data (ie, "show data stream"): it should say 1080x1080 or 1280x720 for those local network HD channels. (as well as data rates O(15-20) Mbps) [again, this is true for KNTV-DT,KTVU-DT,KGO-DT,KQED-DT,KPIX-DT,KRON-DT...all of these stations are 1080i or 720p (KTVU, KRON, KGO).
BTW, even if the SOP numbers i listed before don't work for your locale, i had thought the frequencies should be the same unless you are in the 550 mhz regions...but that's a very uneducated guess.

I get the network channels and some others that I still have to figure out what they are. I guess Radio Shack signal boosters aren't that great.
I'm going to get a Motorola one that someone else uses here.
One odd thing is that I thought HD was 16:9 widescreen. Yet all the networks except KCRA (Channel 3 NBC) are shown in 4:3. Is this right? I noticed the Audio menu has new Dolby Digital and Dolby Spanish audio selections. Does that mean I'm getting an HD signal? I assume it is since the Maglia unit only receives digital TV.
