When in 480p 4x3 #2 and tuned to an HD channel. The formats are now Gray Bar, Letterbox, Stretch1 and Stretch2. In other modes, they still appear as Gray Bar, Normal, Stretch and Zoom. Is this a change, or were these format names always there? If I go to an SD channel, the original labels are still there.

The lable names were changed. That struck me as odd as well when I was documenting the aspect ratio problems for them.
