Re: Just got $89.99 bundled package & have TV newbie questions!
said by Suit Up:Thanks. I will check that out later. I just want the correct aspect ratio. I hate seeing squished picture. I don't mind black bars if they can't fit widescreen fully. Just don't change my aspect ratios!
Yeah, all the HD channels are around the 400s in the LA area (some sports ones start at 389 and there are some premium ones up higher). With the Motorola cable boxes there is a menu you could bring up (turn off the cable box power and then press OK/SELECT on the remote within 2 seconds) to set how the cable box outputs the video. It could either scale everything to one size, output the native resolution, or scale all HD to one size and output 480i for the SD. So depending on your TV you might want to play around with those a bit.
BTW, I noticed KCET28's HD isn't in 400s range.

Socal should be getting more HD in the next few weeks/months:
KWHY HD (MundoFox HD)
PAC12 LA HD
PAC12 National HD
TWC Sports net HD (October 1st)
TWC Deportes HD (October 1st)
KEYT HD (select areas that get the channel currently some areas are having the channel dropped completely and others are having it transitioned to digital) Looks like RF channel 3 (63MHz) is being freed up in some areas.
Also lookout for KAZA HD as they have launched Azteca America in HD in Los Angeles.
Dallas is supposed to get Azteca America HD soon.

Yeah, I'm one of the ones losing KEYT. We've had it in this area for over 20 years (I don't know about before that as I didn't live in the area), so I don't get why they are dropping it now. I guess I'll have to resort to getting a really big antenna to try to get it over the air.
