Wide screen and HD TVs are the newest feature hotels are promoting to draw travelers in. It's great...in theory.
But they take these new TVs and then run a standard signal to the TV. To make things worse, they set the TVs to widescreen mode, even when the signal is a standard 4:3 signal. They do this so people don't have to see bars on the side of the screen. Of course, this screws everything up because the stuff on the screen in s stretched and squashed terribly.
And then they disable the settings so someone who knows what they are doing can't even fix it.
So not only do they not take advantage of the cool HD hardware, they make sure that the picture looks worse than it would on a 20 year old RCA.
Has anyone else noticed this?
