Local Channels (non HD) issues
Posted 09 November 2008 - 03:51 PM
I've tried changing the format types, but it just resizes the current picture.
Any input on how I could resolve this issue would be appreciated.

Directv has been switching to pick up digital local signals in place of analog for SD locals. Perhaps they initially used letterbox in your area and switched to 4:3 center-cut (cropping the edges).
He may be receiving his locals with an MPEG4 receiver since his can change the format. Probably getting the HD feeds.

Locals in HD for his area aren't yet carried by Directv, so it would either be the SD feed or OTA.
I thought it may be an SD feed via D10/D11 in MPEG4 with a new SD MPEG4 tuner.
