OK, So I have a 32in HDTV with a HD digital cable box. I am watching ABCHD channel, and still have a letterbox view. What am I missing? Is this normal?
Not all programs on HD channels are HD...what program are you trying to watch?

At the moment, I am trying to watch the Washington v Tampa Bay football game. And I have the horizontal bars along the top and bottom. I should note that the picture quality is excellent, just can't get rid of the bars.

I am seeing the Redskins in proper 16:9 mode. It appears that your local affiliate is sending the game out down-converted to a 4:3 image. Do other HD broadcasts look correct?

It is certainly annoying, but not at all uncommon. At least in my city, HDTV is very much a work in progress.

Thanks. This is helpful. I have seen only a couple of channels in full screen before. At the moment, all but one channel (WJLAHD) have the letterboxes.
