I am not sure if it is the best conversion but using a fixed single resolution makes channel changing much quicker as my tv's and projector do not have to sync with changing resolutions. I leave my boxes set to the native resolution of the tv or projector. I have 8640HDC and 4250HDC's.

For most people today their TV native resolution is 1080p...

You got all the answers I would have given. Try "component" (red/blue/green video, red/white audio) cables to still get HD and verify if something related to HDMI is the issue. Like someone else said, coax will look bad and not be HD. /Dan

Did TWC change the way the broadcast SD TV recently? I ask because i still have a SD CRT in my bedroom that i watch stuff on while in bed or when getting ready for work and things look like they are cutoff on the left and right.


It appears they are broadcasting wide screen formatted SD without letterboxing. so it fills the area and cuts off a bunch.


anyone else having this issue?


TV is connected right to the wall no cable box

This is more or less the norm now. I've noticed it with TWC in the Hudson Valley, NY, and w/ Cablevision on Long Island. It's not unique to TWC.

Great. Now I'll have to go visit both my mother and my sister and "readjust" their TV's.

Both have HD sets but only standard cable and so keep them set on ZOOM to fill the screen.

It's not necessarily Time Warner. Many stations have gone to an HD only feed that is set up for "center-cut" to display on SD sets. IE: the station is always broadcasting a 16:9 widescreen picture but the image is center-cut and lops off the outside edges. Conversely, Fox News has gone to an HD only letterbox feed. If you have an HD set, you see a full widescreen image, but if you have an SD set you get a letterboxed pictures.

You are supposed to blame TWC!

Hey, when they are wrong or at fault I hold their feet to the fire. Case in point has been with Navigator, but when they do right I give them credit. Like how they got TruTV HD added in time for the NCAA because Syracuse had games there. Even though they lost, TWC came through. In this instance, I doubt TWC is doing anything to mess with the format. They usually just pass through whatever they get (they may do some compression or signal shaping) through to the subs.

I heard that they were having problems with negotiations to carry FOX News Channel. That channel is not on the above list. Did they reach an agreement to continue carrying FOX News Channel?

Desert Hawk,


Apparently, a lot of Fox News agreements are coming up soon. Word is they will seek around $1 per customer.

They should pay me for the inconvenience of having to skip past it. We are real news junkies.
