I recently qualified for the distant CBS and Fox networks as they are the channels which are so hard to get from El Paso. I have seen that the Atlanta channels are the digital versions converted to SD. Are the other 2 networks the same? On the CBS affiliate they use the "zoom" mode for SD shows, however they go to the squeezed mode for HD shows which causes people to look tall and skinny and SD commercials have vertical black bars on the side. I would prefer the zoom mode all of the time, and just cut off the sides of the wide screen picture. I have not seen a HD show on the Fox affiliate but assume it is the same. Of course there are problems with changing modes minutes into the show or even leaving it wrong for hours. Has this always been the case? I did a search and found one reference to the situation. The San Francisco channels appear to be analog and are actually much sharper. I hope they do not switch to the digital version also. This is probably the future of broadcast channels available in SD over the satellite dish, but by 2009 I hope to have a HD TV.
