I finally got HDTV from my cable provider (they just started offering it, despite the fact that I was "HDTV ready" about 3 years ago), and am ecstatic about the picture and sound quality. However, I have a question about video outputs of the cable box. When I set the output to 1080i, my TV stretches and distorts the picture to 4:3, and has some problems with centering of the image on some channels. When I set the output to 480p, everything is DVD like in 16:9 which is a vast improvement over regular cable and I'm happy with it, but I can't understand why the TV or box or combination won't show 1080i in 16:9? I don't think my TV does the squeeze trick properly without ISF calibration...but shouldn't I at least get an actual resolution of 810i or something like that, shown in the correct aspect ratio, using the 1080i output?
