Any updated info on HLN in SD?
You can get the full screen by pressing the FORMAT key until is says "Crop format". It looks about the same as if I take off my glasses when watching HD. :lol:HoTat2 said:It also appears to be simply the down-rezzed HD feed letter-boxed into 4:3, which is fine for an old SDTV, but means short of zooming HDTV viewers are stuck with a window-boxed image that I never prefer watching anyway.
And with DIRECTV's crummy SD resolutions, you can barely afford to watch a program at its normal size much less to zoom in on it.
100% agreed. HLN is a joke of a channel, not really necessary to have it in HD.fleckrj said:When HLN was really headline news, I used to watch it. You could get complete news coverage in 30 minutes. Now, I do not see what purpose HLN has. I have not watched it in years.
Should it be in HD? Probably.
Should it be in HD before Universal Sports, DIY, BBCA, NGW, etc are? Definitely not.
It is all about setting priorties, and HLN is no where near the top of the list.
None. 4k is just too much bandwidth for broadcast. 1080i weighs in at 1MP. The low end of 4K TV (Digital Cinema 4096x1714) weighs in at 7MP and goes all the way up to 12MP (Full Aperture 4096 x 3112).kevinturcotte said:By then, how many channels will be broadcasting in 4K resolution? lol
We're getting off topic, but they also said HD couldn't be done, and local channels would never happen....harsh said:None. 4k is just too much bandwidth for broadcast. 1080i weighs in at 1MP.

They would have to multiplex multiple TV channels to broadcast a single 4K program.
In satellite terms, I'm not sure they could get everything on a single transponder.
