Local Fox being letterboxed, OTA fine
Posted 03 February 2009 - 08:34 PM
If I remember correctly, this has only been happening for the last couple of weeks. Who should I contact about this, the local Fox station, or DirecTV?

Black bars on the sides is called "Pillar Boxing".
Black bars on the top and bottom is called "Letterboxing".
Just helping you out for future reference. :-)

Wouldn't this particular window-box be caused by a letterboxing (for whatever reason, accident or otherwise) someplace likely in DirecTV’s signal chain, of the already 16:9 formatted HD picture from KFXA?
