Starchoice Widescreen

I need some help with My Starchoice system and Toshiba 50h82.
How can I setup the dish so I receive widescreen programming like Star Trek Voyager in widescreen format?
Is this possible?

Any help would be appreciated

Untill Starchoice decides to enable the "bit" that allows our IRD's to recognize a widescreen presentation, we'll have to suffer through leterboxed streched modes, endure the loss of detail on zoom modes, or find out what is available on C-band wild feeds.

Or, maybe fox might do it in anamorphic 480i/480p and we could see them (Fox) at their mediocre best.

I did not realize that Voyager was shot in widescreen - haven't watched it in while, but don't recall it being widescreen. Are you referring to Enterprise?

I think you'll have to use the TV's zoom mode, which as Bent says, causes a 78% increase in the size of the defects.

Oops, I was thinking Enterprise...

I don't think Voyager is in widescreen either.

Voyager was taken off the air quite some time ago, that's why you haven't seen it for a while. :
