Proof that it is an "up-rez?"
Sounds about right to me.
Full or empty?
There were 12 test channels and they used them all. Details in the listing thread.
Also, when a test channel has a name, such as "*xxxHD", and a channel number that matches that name, well, then you have fairly good odds of what they're testing.
My point being...do you own the film on Blu-ray? Are you able to determine if it is from an HD master or an upconvert?
I am saying I jumped the gun. Saw it on a small screen and wanted it to be so. My mistake. Post removed.
Oh, I see. Understood.
Come on now. Can't Hoosiers and Wolverines get along?
GWTW on the HD channel on my cable system is 4:3 with pillar bars and 5.1 DD. On the SD channel it is wide screen stereo.
Almost nothing TCM shows is 16x9 content. If TCM HD fills the screen on a 16x9 screen, then it will not be OAR. All movies made between 1932 and 1952 had an aspect ration of 1.375:1. Most movies made prior to 1932 had an aspect ratio of 1.333:1. I do not know of any movie that has an aspect ratio of 16x9 (1.778:1). If TCM HD is any good, almost nothing they show will fill the screen on a 16x9 TV. If it does, I will not watch it.
We barely have a team. Haha
Uh.... GWTW was filmed in 1.33:1. It should be 4:3 on both.
It looks 4:3 on the TCM SD channel on DirecTV...
I don't believe he meant that we'd have 24/7 16x9 content, but rather that we'd have programs fitted for a 16x9 screen due to the fact that TCM-HD will be made for viewing on 16x9 screens... in other words, no window-boxing)!
First season was 1887...and .425 record to date. Only two conference titles! Men's basketball is another story entirely.
Gne with the wind will never be seen in anything but 4x3 as I recall, as that is what it was shot in I do believe. 4x3 dose not automatically make something sd or Hi Definition. Usually it makes it sd, but not always. Tcm is going to show us all a lot of those examples.
The fact is, if we don't get DIY-HD soon, every project in my house is going to be a bit mis-measured and slightly off-center---I can't see what the heck they're doing in SD!
His first statement was actually a quote by Coca Cola Kid:
His statement was referring to the fact that there are a lot more part-time RSNs than what I have listed in a list he was referring to.
I do have TOH available in HD, but, unfortunately, I don't yet have the $3-million or so New England house (which has always seemed to be their staple project) to go along with it.
Sure, but even on my worst DIY day, skills-wise, I'm far closer to an Al than a I am a Tim, hence, my need for a DIY-HD fix.
C'mon, DIRECTV, we real DIY guys are counting on you!
1.86:1 is traditionally shown as 16x9. Even on DVD. TCM shows plenty in that ratio. Plus, I was talking in general of widescreen (they do show a lot of widescreen stuff, which gets cut down to very small on the SD screen.
TCM does not limit itself to movies before 1952. Better check things out again.
