I read about this elsewhere, and thought the problem was solved, but it seems like it wasn't. Episode 8 of the Ric Burns series New York: A Documentary Film, entitled The Center Of The World, chronicles the rise and fall of the World Trade Center. The 3-hour film was broadcast widescreen on PBS, and supposedly released on widescreen DVD last month. I just purchased the DVD, and it seems there was a mastering/transfer mistake -- the film is presented full frame (and before anyone asks, my DVD player is configured properly -- I tested several widescreen DVD's right after, and they all displayed fine with top and bottom black bars). It is very obvious -- you can tell pictures looked "zoomed in," and names and text are partially cut off. Has anyone else had this problem? Or not had this problem? I notice on the Shop PBS website that this DVD is on 2-4 week backorder. Has anyone heard about PBS fixing the problem? Thanks for any information.
