    I have my TiVo Premiere connected to an antenna, and there are some channels that letterbox no matter what. I have it in the settings to "zoom" but it letterboxes.

    Also, when I use the zoom button on the remote, nothing happens at all. The button zooms on some channels, but not this particular channel.

    Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Thanks.

    How are you connecting Tivo to the TV? Composite (yellow/white/red) will be letterbox, and I believe component (green/blue/red and white/red audio) letterboxes as well.

    If they hard-code the letterboxing into an HD signal, you can't remove it with the zoom button.

    +1 :up: HD signal, SD content

    You can always zoom using your HDTV display.

    My cable DVR and STBs can still zoom an HD signal, so it should be something TiVo could implement.
