Default Spain hotel with analogue channels as well as digital.

Just returned from Ibiza, Samsung 32" flat wide screen TV in room, 92
channels of various European countries Tv in digital and 13 on
analogueEG the digital ones which included BBC world news, 2 USA news
channels, Disney all in English and the rest European.
The digital ones were correct 16x9 pictures, but the analogues ones
where all letterbox with short fat people.
Remote being in a hotel had been doctored to only basic features
operational thus no control of picture ratio.


Anyone into hotel TV disruption as I just curious how it will have been
done.

Aerials for the digital ones?
Satellite for the the analogue distributed ones?

Regards
David

Yes, always swap around a few leads before you check-out!

Quite likely an STB per channel, with RF out (or SCART to external
modulator) all fed into a combiner, the wrong aspect ratio is probably
set on the STBs not the TV in the room ...

Could be from cable, they could have injected them or the TV's could have both tuners, but managed into a single list.
