I can watch it in normal format on my TV's by overriding the TV format to 16:9, but it looks terrible on my Tablo DVRs and HDHomerun HDHR5...
Can you please make a 30 second capture so we can review and talk to the station.

Nick, if you are so eager to pester stations to fix their aspect ratio, how about starting with your own backyard? E.g Newsnet on 24-7 broadcast is available on multiple frequencies. The one on RF 24 KAAP-LD7 has a wrong aspect ratio. It is also missing (w) in this report:

Code: Select all

7 San Francisco, California
24-07	(24)	480i	KAAP-LD	SANTA CRUZ, CA	Major Market Broadcasting
24-07	(11)	480i	KPJC-LD	San Francisco, CA	Jeff Chang
24-7	(22)	480i (w)	KZHD-LD	Rohnert Park, CA	One Ministries
24-7	(14)	480i (w)	KDTS-LD	SAN FRANCISCO, CA	Word of God Fellowship

Nick - did you get anywhere with them? This is their wikipedia page (clearly shows 16:9 format): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KBVO_(TV)
