Context:

(...) but she honorably put a sliver of her bonus into Dona Bebel's weekly envelope for every comission she won. She never asked Done Bebel though when she saw her casual aside-up in sixteen-by-nine with full graphics.

The character is a TV producer. And Bebel gives her ideas for the shows from times to times.

Does this apply to a contribution? As ususal the end of the sentence is confusing.

    I think I got it.

    Bebel made a casual comment and she produced a show after it.
    sixteen-by-nine possibly refers to the dimensions of the TV set.

    Am I right?

    I think you're right-- it should read "she saw her casual aside, up in sixteen by nine with full graphics."

    Her "casual aside" refers to the comment she had casually made, and now this idea had been turned into a TV show (or a mock-up, perhaps?), up on TV (or on the wall) complete with full graphics.

    By the way, the phrase you wanted in your first post is "from time to time."
