It's called 1080i Stretch because it stretches all content out to 16:9. If it's already 16:9, then it doesn't have to stretch. But if it's 4:3, it gets stretched out. That's why it's called Stretch and not Normal.bonscott87 said:I think the HR20 modes are poorly labled because you'll notice that the first 1080i mode is called "1080i Stretch" and it's obvioulsy not stretching the 1080i signal but sending it pure. I'd call it more 1080i normal.
