Comcast just turned on TCM-HD in our area but it is in 480. Does anyone have it in wisescreen? Is it only transmitted in 480?

Thanks for the help.

I receive TCM in HD from Cablevision in NJ, the signal they send is 1080i. That doesn't mean the movie will be wide screen. Movies made before 1953 were filmed in the 4:3 ratio. This makes them the same shape as the old SD television sets we all have stashed away in the basement. They are still being shown in HD, it is just that they were not shot in widescreen to begin with.
Now if your TV is showing that the signal it is receiving is 480, then nothing I just said matters and I hope someone else can give you the right answer.
