I have TVheadend running a HDHomerunConnect. Everything works perfectly fine except channels beyond 1,2,3 (eg. Bravo, Prime, TVNZ+1 etc) display in 4:3 as opposed to 16:9. Any idea why this would be the case?


When I access the HDHomerun using the HDHomerun software the channels display nicely in widescreen so I assume it's a tvheadend issue? Any help would be much appreciated.


Im in Wellington using Kaukau and have 3 muxes on 594Mhz, 562Mhz and 578Mhz.


Thanks in advance.

Not having an HDHomeRun, I can not help with your original problem.  But Kaukau has 5 muxes, not 3.  It used to be 4 muxes until a month or so ago when Maori TV and Te Reo moved to Maori owned bandwidth on a new mux on 610 MHz, so they could be broadcast in HD.  The other mux you are missing is on 530 MHz.  This has been broadcasting for quite a while now and has HGTV, Al Jazeera and Radio NZ National plus several other channels.

That's a strange one...


Tvheadend with default settings should just be passing through the raw signal untouched. What are you using as a frontend?

Not really of particular help to you, but just to confirm that I'm running an HDHomeRun Connect with NextPVR also from Kaukau, with Kodi as a front end and I'm not seeing those sort of issues.
