I was just coming out here to ask someone who has Time Warner Cable if the ratio was off for them too. Before I call DirecTV to see whats wrong, I wondered if it was DTV or whether it is FSN that is the source of the non-HD broadcast. So, TWC customers, is the game in HD/proper ratio for you?

Must be related to the the technical difficulties that caused the pregame to start late.

The commercials look normal is 4:3 mode but the game doesn't unless in 16x9 lol. If they dont know hoew to use the hd equipment then dont use it and hire people that know how to use it lol.

Same here in Dayton on TW. It's not the provider, it's FSN. So much for this game being in HD I guess.

This all would be dependent upon your television's settings, but mine has an aspect setting and if I set it to 4:3 expanded it will at least quit making people look tall and thin. It still isnt in HD but it looks normal at least.

Just checked, Pittsburgh's broadcast today isnt in HD. Besides, all of Pittsburgh's promotional messages and graphics package would be broadcast in Cincy. Not good.

What the hell was that?? It sounded like George was on the phone or something; and he apologized for the lack of video.

Since the lack of video when they came back the 4:3 I think looks normal now.
