I got around to trying the S-Video output on my Dish 811 receiver last night. I have a 16:9 TV, but as I expected the S-Video output only sends a 4:3 picture. SD satellite fills the 4:3 picture entirely, and HD satellite fills the 4:3 picture, but adds black bars to the top and bottom (as I expected).


Where the weirdness occurs is with some of my OTA channels. I was getting black bars above, below, and on both sides of the picture, within the 4:3 picture. So there was basically this tiny picture in the middle of my 16:9 screen. I noticed this on NBC and FOX. Most of the other OTA channels were fine, they filled the 4:3 picture entirely. Has anyone else experienced this, and is there some way to correct it?

Because I want to get a PVR unit, and they only seem to accept S-Video inputs. Maybe I'll just wait for an HD PVR unit.
