4:3 Over-ride (STRETCH)
When the set top is outputting in HD (720p/1080i), press the "Enter/Zoom" button on the remote. This will bring up a side menu allowing you to "stretch" the 4:3 pricture on SD channels so they fit the full screen.
Information on Galaxie Radio channels
- Currently not available, from what I've been told, sometime in the new year (Guessing this means late January/Feb sometime?). I was told the caller ID should come with this, or around the same time.
I did notice not being able to fast forward and rewind recorded radio stations. Apparently, it has to do with the fact that they're programmed as "radio" and not a normal tv station on MTS's side, so the features isn't there by default. According to a support rep, they would look into seeing if this could be added at some point, but he stated that it's unlikely it would be done soon as they're working hard on things like caller ID and such first.
A note about the set tops, MTS doesn't really get too much say in the matter as they don't make them (same with Shaw), they can choose between a few different models/companies. But I notice there seems to be a trend with all set tops to get away from showing the time? I don't know why this is, as I find it something useful. I notice the "silver" is another thing, no more black set tops it seems.
I also dislike the "double" theme group, I get why it's done in cases (more $$ and I notice they have more expensive channels), but I wish there would be another option, like 2 expensive channels I want as 1 theme group instead of getting 2 with a bunch of channels I don't want and costing 2 theme groups).
