    Oh man for the love of God I hope not! I just sent off emails to tbs and history channel and tried my best to convince them otherwise. I am not going to let idiots ruin it for the rest of us. :mad:

    I haven't checked it out myself, but are the reruns of The Office distorted at all? Those are produced 16:9.

    It was terrible. Letterboxed 4:3 stretched horizontally only. So its stretched sideways AND still had black bars on top and bottom. Completely unwatchable. Its like a little kid hooked up your equipment wrong. One of the worst things I've seen in networks stretch-o-vision mistakes honestly.

    :down:

    :eek2:

    This is the reason why I don't make a big deal about which sat provider gets what HD channel, especially if the content is not OAR. Bogus. :down:

    Yeah there is no excuse whatsoever for an HD network to broadcast something that was made in HD in anything but HD, no stretched crap. That is completely ridiculous.

    TBS must having an issue tonight with the MLB game. The image is shifted up about an inch or so. The graphic on top is being cut off.

    It is not TBS. A friend with Comcast has no such issue. As for me, my 622/65" mitsubishi rptv suffers the same overscan this game.

    Thanks DISH.

    It's happening on both my HR20-700s and HR10-250s, on both channel 95 and 247. I thought at first I had inadvertently done something to my format size, but that wasn't the case.

    ...happening on both my 622 and 222. I started a thread on it before I realized anyone had commented here.

    EDIT - problem is fixed so I deleted my other thread.

    Yeah, sorry. Forgot to mention that fact. So it seems the problem's not relegated to one provider.

    I saw people posting about TBSHD problems tonight on Dish and DirecTV.. so it was NOT a Dish problem. Something on TBS end was to blame. It could have been a problem just with satellite and not cable customers, though, if they give a different feed to satellite than cable.

    In any event, by the time I saw the posts and went to check my TV, all seemed fine.. so I guess whatever the problem tonight was corrected itself before I saw it.

    Yeah, it took them a little while to fix it. Their graphics package was positioned a bit high.

    I'm reviewing this thread to find out if TBS HD has been added to the 9000 channels and I noted your post.

    Wasn't I just watching TBS HD? Or was it another channel?

    Thanks.

    You think I owe DISH an apology? Well, I don't think so. Was it a DISH issue? Clearly not. But so what? Aren't we all taking this DISH loyalty thing a bit too seriously?

    Look, I like DISH services and equipment better than cable or DirecTV, but none of these providers are perfect. At the time it was a logical assumption that DISH was to blame. They turned out not to be:icon_cry: . So sue me...

    BTW -- read Post 196 -- I've already observed that DirecTV also seemed affected.

    So, now that the NLCS is over, anything other then stretch-o-vision being displayed on this channel?

    I wouldn't mind it as much if they would just vertically stretch matchbox content as well. I hate that they stretch it horizontally to get rid of the pillarboxes, just to please the masses who don't know better, while leaving the letterboxes in place (I assume because people are already used to them).
