Roku stripping sides of Comet TV.
I have noticed that the Xfinity Beta Stream App on the Roku is cutting off the sides of Comet TV so the Comet TV subchannel of KATU is being cut down from its broadcasted 16:9 aspect ratio to 4:3, so there are unnecessary pillar bars on the side of the part of the image being displayed instead of the full boradcasted image. This happens on the Roku for both on live TV and when playing from the cloud DVR.
Comet TV displays correctly (full 16:9 display) on the XG1v4-A connected to a HDTV.
This is Comet TV, Channel 301 in the Salem, OR service area, broadcasted from KATU (Portland, OR) on virtual subchannel 2.3.
Now much of the content that is broadcasted on Comet TV happens to date back to when TV content was mostly 4:3, but many movies on Comet TV are broadcasted 16:9, so those movies look good on the XG1v4, but when played on the Roku the sides are chopped off and replaced with pillar bars. This was most recently observed about an hour ago watching "Spiders 3D" live on both the XG1v4-A and Roku Xfinity Beta Stream App.
Aa an aside, until two weeks ag MeTV (KATU 2.2) had the same problem, but two weeks ago that was fixed and recordings more recent than two weeks ago are correct. Thank you!
