Standards chaos -- just for a laugh
on Nov 22, 2016 at 4:21:51 pm

Just thought I'd share something for a Thanksgiving week laugh....

I would normally never take a picture of my TV, but something happened a couple of nights ago that had me scrambling to whip out my phone and snap a pic...

I was watching something with one eye, I don't even remember what, and the following thing happened during a commercial.... if my math is right that is letterboxing inside pillarboxing inside a letterbox/pillarbox combo inside still more pillarboxing....

Keep in mind there is no cable voodoo going on there, that is a direct off air signal.

I know, sometimes you see weird formatting, especially on one of a station's subchannels (which this was), but seriously, people!....

Lets replace all those expensive engineers with kids who'll work really cheap!
