AskDBStalk: OTA display problem
Posted 23 January 2004 - 04:28 PM
Has anyone else seen this? Is it just sloppy broadcasting or should the 921 letterbox mode or gray bars hide this overscan area?
Note: All sat channels, both SD and HD display correctly.
921 display out set to 480p and 4:3 #1
SW L145 HECD-N

I think the problem is partly the 921s fault - there are overscan issues still with various aspect ratio modes. But, I also know of some local stations that aren't doing a good job broadcasting their digital signal as well. My example is KMGH here in Denver broadcasting their SD digital signal. There's a blue line down the edge of their 4x3 picture that isn't hidden by the 921 gray bars, but it's a local KMGH problem, not a 921 problem.
I also have the same issue with a bright blue line down the left side of a 4:3 SD digital signal from KWKB out Iowa City. At first I thought this was the Transparent blue line problem reported in another thread. If this is from the local broadcaster, I assume there is nothing we can do until they correct their signal.
