Do you record the SD channel when recording SD programming?
Posted 01 July 2008 - 04:04 PM
Do most of you do this so that when recording/viewing SD programming on HD channels you don't have to put up with the channels' forced stretched modes (ala TBS HD/TNT HD) and/or letterboxed SD picture within a 16:9 frame (such as with Doctor Who on Sci-Fi HD)?
I have a DVD recorder that I use to save off SD content and am trying to figure out the best way to continue to do this with a 722.

The only exception I really have is all my timers for the kid's cartoons and Disney shows. They have so many of them I don't want them overrunning all the other recordings I have so I have them all SD.

Is it a forced letterboxed 4:3 picture, making say Doctor Who windowboxed on the SD output?
I know I can zoom the HD output, but I'm wondering if that would still give me the same letterboxed 4:3 picture for my DVD recorder on an SD out that recording the SD channel would.
