Re: [TV] Basic Digital: TSN CH26

I noticed a couple months ago that Rogers were sending TSN HD programming out on Channel 26 but were squashing it horizontally to make it fit 4:3 ... the result was tall skinny people and oval curling rings! They seem to have got the message and fixed it.

Yea, that's called "Digital Zoom". It's an option on digital to analog converters to "center cut" the digital picture format and enhancing it to full 4:3 screen size while eliminating the "letterbox bars"..

i noticed my parents had cable plus, and now have tsnHD instead of tsn SD, plus they turned on the auto hd feature, pretty neat eh? before if u wanted tsn hd u needed to get the supersports pack or something, which included some useless channels like espn classic, college football, goal tv, etc.

It's a free preview. They won't have it after April 30th.
