Hi


I hope that this is posted in the right spot. I live in Georgetown,Ky

and have time warner cable and a hd cable box. It is connected to

the tv with a hdmi cable. The hd channels come in fine some come

in letterbox and some full screen depending on the channel. My

question is mainly about the sd channels. Most come in 4:3 ratio

with the bars on the side but certain channels (sci-fi and usa) in

particular come in with bars all the way around. Is this normal or

is there a setting I am missing?


Thanks

I don't know for sure, but what's probably happening is that the SD content is widescreen content letterboxed, and that letterboxed content is being shown with the black bars on the sides. If you use the Zoom function on your TV, it'll probably look normal, framewise.
