Is anyone getting CBC-HD in full wide-screen format?
I'm in Fredericton. I'm now getting a local feed on ch. 514. It used to come out of Toronto.
Now, all programming on 514 is in small format, not 9:16 aspect ratio.
Am the only one getting this? If not, why aren't there more complaints.
CBC NB did broadcast in 16:9 for a few days after the digital switchover but then suddenly reverted to 4:3 with no explanation. After a few days of that Aliant took the local CBC feed off their assigned HD channel and reinstated the Toronto feed until CBC clears up the problem. I haven't seen anything yet as to exactly what the problem is. I e-mailed CBC asking for info and promised the FibreOP forum I would post any reply, but I never received any.
I just spoke to Rogers. They say that they can't change back to CBC Toronto due to CRTC rules.
So, it may be awhile before we get an HD wide-screen from ch. 514 CBC.
On a 52" screen the CBC looks pathetic. Hockey Night in Canada starts tonight. This is cruel and unusual punishment and we're paying a premium for it. I'm not a happy camper.
Funny, I just called and got another line telling me that ALL of Canada's Rogers customers are watching it in SD because CBC is having trouble. Funny how there is not 1 thread about this in the Ont forum. Can anyone confirm Ont's feed is indeed in SD?
I don't normally watch hockey, but I was performing an optimization just north of Toronto this evening and when flicking through the channels I'm pretty sure CBC Hockey was HD in the early evening. The Pit/Van game that's on right now is HD.
