I know there are probably a lot of threads about this... but i can't find the proper one. I have a Rogers HD Digital Cable box and my image is being broadcasted in 1080i but it is clearly stretched. I used to be able to change it from "normal" to "stretched"... but i cant find where to do that. Does anyone know how to fix this?
I don't know if this is the source of your problem but a program may appear stretched depending on the content that the channel is broadcasting. Some programs aren't transmitted in true 720p or 1080i HD so they employ a method called stretch-o-vision which Wikipedia defines as, "the practice of video in the 4:3 aspect ratio being stretched to a widescreen aspect ratio such as 16:9 in various ways, causing a distorted picture."
