Do the SA3000 SD series of STB support widescreen mode?

Since the digital cable channels are encoded using MPEG-2 MA@PL format, which I believe is the same as that recorded on DVD-Video, and DVD supports 16x9 widescreen/letterboxing I'm wondering if these STBs also support this feature so that a channel such as BBC Canada could broadcast in widescreen as it does in the UK and have the STB letterbox the picture for 4x3 TVs and allow widescreen for 16x9 TVs.

Any ideas out there?
