COUNTDOWN IS BACK THIS JANUARY, 2019 ... ON rage !!!!! Stay tuned below with regular Countdown full archival information for each Countdown episode rage shall be airing every Saturday throughout January ...
I thought any old shows (4.3) converted in 16.9 would give you the black vertical bars on each side of the picture. On my Foxtel box, I set up the programming to 4.3 ('setup' button on the remote) when I want to record old shows off Fox and keep it at the 16.9 for current programs. Obviously Foxtel IQ is different?
Must be different as on my IQ I can change the settings from 4.3 to 16.9. I changed it to 16.9 on my rage recorded Saturday night and when I changed the streched Pseudo Echo in 4.3 to 16.9 it came full screen and looking normal.
Want me to send u a copy so u can see what it looks like?
Jason, what you describe would be how the image appears on a 4:3 TV set, which I'm guessing you're watching it on given your dislike for widescreen (which I share).
Anyway, if you view that IQ recorded footage on a widescreen TV, it will fill the whole (wide)screen, so still won't be displayed correctly.
My set top box (which I view on a 4:3 TV) has the settings 4:3, letterboxed 4:3 (which I use wherever possible to capture 'fake' widescreen clips from the 80s/90s, so they display correctly [unless 14:9 or 15:9] as they were originally intended), and 16:9.
