Channel Master Stream+ Incorrect Aspect Ratio
 
Over the past couple of months certain recorded 16:9 widescreen shows are displaying in what appears to be 4:3 aspect ratio. Everything is squeezed into being tall and skinny. It actually appears to be narrower than 4:3. I contacted CM and the guy emailed me back saying "Google changed the way recorded 480i widescreen displays". He said "theres a fix though, just grab your tv remote and change the aspect ratio". Yeh, every time I want to watch a recording of a 480i widescreen show, I have use another remote, and switch it back afterwards. That's bad enough, but the tv's format function doesn't fully widen the image without stretching it.

CM says contact Google. I say, they should contact Google and get this corrected. Anyone else seeing this problem. H&I Network and Quest are two that do this. They look fine live, but recordings are squeezed.

Unfortunately, the CM Stream+ is only an Android hardware box that runs Android-TV as the OS. The functioning of the applications that provide all the functionality are the province of the app developers -- not CM. As long as the hardware runs as advertised, CM is in the clear. I suspect that is exactly the way CM wants it.
