Yes. If you record an OTA digital channel of an SD show and try to
transfer it to tape to view on an SD TV, the best you can get is a
picture with a dark band on all four sides.
I Tivo an SD show for my wife, I can record it off the SD channel or
off the digital channel. I found that for transferring to VHS for her
to view on a regular SD TV I needed to record it off the SD feed and
transfer it in "full screen" mode at 480i.
