Just wondering if anyone else in Canada has had the SD signal for TCM rendered unwatchable by reformatting that now stretches the image to the sides of my 16X9 TV. The change happened at 10 a.m. ET last Thursday, 17 minutes into Calamity Jane (my DVR caught the exact moment the 1953 film went from regular square Academy ratio to a horizontally stretched "windowboxed" picture that squeezes the image from top to bottom. I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and my cable provider Eastlink noted the problem when I phoned them, but told me the issue was present in the signal they were receiving by satellite, so (according to them) the issue lies further up the chain. I haven't heard back from them since then, nearly a week later, and the problem remains, although other SD channels look the way they always have. No amount of playing with the settings in my cable box/DVR can change this, and there was no change made to the unit at the time of the format change from regular to squeezed last Thursday. Hope I'm not alone in noticing this! TCM is pretty much the only reason I still have cable, so you'd think it would be in their best interest to fix this...
