    Is the O'Reilly Factor on the FOX news channel not available in widescreen HD? I watch some of the other shows on the FOX news channel and they are in widescreen HD but not the O'Reilly Factor.

    Is it FOX or my system? I have an HR20-700.

    FOX. All news channels are building new studios to handle HD. Comedy Central won't have Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert until 2010.

    Alas, I have not seen a similar announcement on FOX and O'Reilly. Yet, I'm certain there will be someone around here who has. :)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Yep for awhile after FNC became available in HD O'Reilly was still broadcasting in SD format with a news bar on the side. But a few weeks ago he re-vamped his set and they started broadcasting in wide screen.

    Are you sure you are tuning to the HD version of FNC? Sounds like maybe you're watching the non-HD version... make sure you haven't somehow deleted the HD version from displaying in your guide. If you have an old series recording set up on your DVR it is probably recording from the non-HD channel.. you just need to delete it and set it up to record from FNCHD.

    Personally I don't really like his new set... the blue background is too bright.

    As SEAKevin notes, O'Reilly has been in true HD for a while now.

    I checked and it appears it is recording the SD version. I eliminated it from the list and added it back in again selecting the HD channel. I'll see if it works tonight. I agree the new set sucks. Way to much blue.
