Re: COZI TV replaced NonStop 460 vho7

said by bohratom:

IN VHO7 it still acts like a HD channel (aka it will not stretch like I have it set for SD channels) and I have to manually perform it. Might be something in the guide still left over from the old channel.

I think it has to do with the way the channel is broadcasting. I keep stretch turned off, but if I tune to 4.2 during the 7pm news the picture is stretched anyway. But then during Cozi programming the picture is back to 4:3.

4.2 is encoded as 16:9 SD by WNBC.
That's why you have to manually change the aspect ratio to have 4:3 programming stretched to fill the 16:9 frame.
Some of the older TV shows on Cozi might be remastered for 16:9.
If you watch UHD or WGN older TV shows from the 70's and 80's are shown in HD when the original broadcasts were 4:3.
