Did U-Verse TV change the way it broadcasts in standard definition? On Wednesday, at 8:10, without changing any of the screen resolution settings on either the TV or the uverse box, the show began showing with black bars around the entire picture. Now I have to have the picture stretched and there are still black bars on the top and bottom of this screen. I never had to do this before and it is seriously not cool.

Another thing that might be causing this is that each program is broadcasted a different way, and there could have been a possible change in the feed at that time, or possibly a change in the way that U-verse broadcasts it. I know with most sporting games, U-verse will broadcast it in a 16:9 format, but the local news on afterwards or an old television program will be on 4:3.
If you notice a different with all your programs, there may have been a change picture ratio on your end. Be sure to check both the TV and the U-verse receiver as both will have their own individual settings for this.

Locally (Indianapolis) WXIN has changed their SD output and it has black bars across the top/.bottom. I have to go to zoom / 3X to remove them. Yes, we have a modern HD TV but the wife starts at the low end of SD to watch TV.
