Well I'm not getting any of my local channels now (I was geting 2 of the 5 last night), but when I did get them I didn't get them in wide screen format so I had a black bar on each side. If I changed the aspect ratio on my TV, it just scaled the balck bars along with it so I assumed it was a problem with the VOOM box (With my analog cable the picture was always scaled to wide screen.) I called VOOM and he had me play around with the picture formatting setup which did nothing. He then checked into it and told me if the local channel is just broadcasting in SD it will look like this, but if it is HD it will be wide screen. Is this true? If so is it a show by show basis or a channel by channel basis?
