Re: WLIW & Subchannels

said by kickass69:

It's sad that WLIW itself isn't carried in the Morris County system, just Create and World.

Wow, That's wierd. You don't have WLIW but get its sub channels.

I don't know what you mean by "widescreen."

Here on the Brookhaven, LI system, all 3 channels you mentioned are in 16:9 windowbox format with black bars around all 4 sides.

Widescreen as in it no longer has black bars around all four sides.

What's ironic is that while the WLIW channels are now in pure widescreen, all the channels that were widescreen have bars above and below and look like they're flatten.

I can confirm that WLIW Create and World are still in 4:3 but alot of programming is widescreen so the 4 dark sides still exist. You might have the Zoom function on your TV or the box on.

...or his box is set to stretch/auto-fill the screen on non-HD channels.

Those was the first things I checked. I am on normal 1080i. I have a component connection to my tv. I haven't changed any settings from my STB.
