    Hi all,

    I am a little confused about NBC's broadcasts of ER and Kingpin in letterbox form? What type of broadcast is that? And what picture mode is optimal for that on the TV?

    Thanks,

    Naddy

    It's a digital simulcast with the analog signal that you're probably getting.

    You need a digital tuner and a digital-ready monitor to see it properly.
