    On HD version of Fox news, I am seeing a very wierd smart stretch on my Premiere. The funny thing is, on my Premiere4, on the same cable system, I do not see it!!!

    On the premiere, the center of the picture is squished in and as you get to the edges, it is stretched out. The text crawl is very wierd

    I thought it could be aspect, but nothing in aspect does this type of stretch. It almost reminds me of the way they used to stretch SD at the edges to 'make' it HD

    Fox HD channel 618
    FIOS system

    There are two places where you need to check the aspect ratios- the TV and the Tivo. I suspect one was changed accidentially.

    It may be the channel.

    I've seen that kind of stretch when a HD channel airs 4:3 content and they want to fill the screen.
