If anyone subscribes to the News Package and gets channel 195 (Deutsche Welle) and has an SD box, they can answer this question. The channel is based in Germany and like many european broadcasters has been 16:9 SD for quite a while.

This channel has been 16:9 SD on Rogers for the past couple of years (with the aspect ratio flag set correctly as 57 points out).

I have two HD boxes (Pace and SA8300HD) and when surfing to the channel, it is always displayed in anamorphic widescreen (not letterboxed, squished or anything else) and when I look at the MPEG transport stream via firewire from the rogers box, it is an anamorphic 480x480 picture.

I'd be curious to know how this looks on an SD box with a 4:3 TV.
