    Hi,
    Is there a way to change the sling aspect ratio to 16:9 on the Vip922 Sling? When I view a HD channel via PC/I explorer it is black bared to 4x3.
    Now, the weird thing is I also have a 722 with a sling adapter installed and it displays HD is the proper format.

    What have I missed?

    Thanks in advance

    Phil

    Well they had it fixed for about a month.... But here it is again....

    New sling update and no such thing is the 16/9 ratio........

    I just don't understand how screwed up this company is.....? And the forced to update if I could put the old update in....I would have a HD format..

    I have seen issues in the HQ mode. If I turn off HQ mode, the aspect ratios seem correct... but if I turn on HQ mode then the aspect is wrong. Are you seeing similar? OR is it always wrong even with HQ mode disabled?

    Well.....Its off the wall no consistency.....I did get a full screen at one point... and the esc key did nothing so it locked up IE 11... even had a box on my laptop with the show and it was my guess? 1 1/2 inch by 1 inch........

    So inconsistent, and crashing the browser is all it really does.....What is sad it was broke for a good 6 months, gets straightened out for a month.... now this...

    Thanks for the collage try.. :)

    I have troubles sometimes with the Web browser too... but like you said, it is more along the lines of crashing or not working. The iPhone/iPad apps tend to be more reliable for me... but the aspect ration problem is what I have there mostly.
