why would this be? Downloading these earlier ones from iTunes and looking at resolutions displays clearly 480p (actually 840 x something), so it must be the TV set that is ''changing them to 16:19"
Its not zoomed, because no cropping occurs.. so I'm confused.. If these were indeed "remastered" Seasons 1 though 20 on iTunes the resolution would be 720 or 1080p wouldn't it?
I thought SD was always cropped, as if it's 4:3 resized to 16:9, that would be zoomed in which would result in cropped image (which i do not see)
By the way, i only notice it on this, not on other SD content as they all have black bars..
You can't add pixels which ain't there.
DVD resolutions are considered "SD" and those are 16x9. SD doesn't mean 4x3. and the 16x9 resolution for 480p is 848x480.
