HD Theater Smushed Screens

The family room TV is a 10 year old Sony 36XBR250 which has a vertical compression feature. There is a bug in the HDTheater firmware that activates that in the Sony so the menus are squished and the fonts are not very readable in things like the program guide. Supposedly, there will be a fix, but in the next beta of the server software. In the meantime, the family room unit won't be getting much play.


  1. I'm not positive, but I thought they fixed this in one of the last two beta firmware updates.

  2. yup they did. i dusted it off friday night and updated it. i just posted about it working a few hours before you commented. thanks.
