Contour - KBLR Las Vegas Telemundo HD ch 1009 and aspect ratio weird issue

This is like a weird issue I am having with Contour affecting only the HD channel 1009 in Las Vegas, NV.

If I set the Contour box Video Output Format to 1080i wide and Stretch 4:3 Pic --- Even if HD Telemundo's feed is 16:9 it is being treated as 4:3 and it stretches. It should not happen this way. All other HD channels are fine and shows all the picture.

The solution I can only do was set it to Sidebar 4:3 Pic or Preserve 4:3 Pic and I get all the picture in channel 1009, however all the SD 4:3 channels will have the black side bars.

  • Hi Mora61,

    There isn't a problem with your setup. We receive the broadcast for 1009 Telemundo HD with the sidebars. It sounds like you've found a work-around, but this would also affect the sidebar for other channels.

    Oh, alright. Well then, thanks for pointing out.

    Since it is the station, only time will tell when it is fixed. I'll just accept having the sidebars on all the SD channels.
