I was excited to learn the History Channel was going HD. I haven't watched the History Channel since HD content became available on other channels. When I saw that the programming on the History HD Channel was stretched I immediately took it off the channels I watch list and it will remain there until it keeps it's content in the original aspect ratio. I would rather see black bars than a stretched picture.

I don't watch History HD. The picture is distorted.
Does anyone have any idea when this will be corrected? I am blown away that any reasonable person in charge of any programing can allow the stretch o vision. And this question goes for A&E and any other channel doing stretch o vision. I did see CSI on A&E and it was proper HD with the proper aspect. Also "the universe: had the double letterbox going. It had black bars on the top and bottom. So if you changed to 4:3 you would see the proper 16:9 picture with black bars all around.

This makes it a pain to watch any of their shows. Is it listed in HD? Yes, then the HD channel, no, then the SD channel. Is it really HD? No, then back to the SD channel. Try programming the HR20 to do that.
SciFi has it right. The HD channel broadcasts all shows in the proper aspect ratio. No stretching there. I can have only the HD channel in my favorites with out the clutter of both SD and HD channels.

My receiver is showing Dolby PL II Cinema instead of Dolby Digital & man the quality is bad!
