Cox San Diego with ABC takeover of METV Black sides on picture but not on all shows or during station brakes!
Using a Contour Box some of the shows on METV the B/W shows and others have black sides on the picture with no way to make it full screen using video zoom settings but when the show Wonder Women is on or the station breaks are on its full screen! This is from the time of the ABC network takeover of METV from CBS network. What different equipment and or video settings is ABC using that is different than the way CBS was doing it?
Some of the content that the network broadcast may not be in High Definition and will put black sidebars on each side of the screen. When this happens can you check another TV to see if that B/W show is full screen? The same with Fox News channel do you see lines on other Tvs on that channel? Thanks
It's quite possibly an equipment issue on ABC's side. When ABC initially took over the MeTV feed, they didn't have the correct equipment in place. It took several days for the station to restore the MeTV feed for Cox Contour customers. You may want to direct your question to the broadcast station.
