SD, 480i channels getting stretched
Starting today or yesterday, a bunch of SD channels between 300 and 400 on the Classic East channel map are getting stretched from 480i to appear as if they’re filling a 16x9, 720 or 1080 resolution. But they’re still in SD. Any idea what the hell is going on? I set my SD setting to NOT stretch to fill on TV’s and receivers.
Is Shaw doing this, or are the originating broadcasters up to something.
Channel 389, CTV Two Vancouver Island is one of these false, stretched, or zoomed channels.
Channel 306, CBC Calgary, another, while Ch. 307, CBC Edmonton is still 480i.
Also, loads of SD channels have gone blank. Nothing there but solid colour screens and no audio. I’m using a DSR630, so that’s not the problem (mpeg 4 conversions). And I’m still using an older, quad lnb, but if the channels had been moved to G1, the channel guide designation would just have disappeared. Anyone?
