Picture size off with 1080i

My RCA D52W20 when using component video at 1080i 16x9 is off a little on the top and side
See the picture here http://byfiles.storage.live.com/y1pfh2z2y7N0wwTb9AEldSDDcDABtVOpY7JNSEtHsB4oTDQ6pGaOmEN-aLY7cHVyWst
you can see the top of the picture is cut off a little bit

I'm not able to change the aspect ratio with the remote and the source is set at 16x9

with standard ( non-HD ) video it works fine

thanks

    I"m not sure which post you wanted me to see, but I'm not able to change the aspect ratio when it's set like this, I think it's set correctly. I don't belive that's the issue.

The picture seems to have gotten bigger and now the tops of their heads are cut off


When this happens you can try the wide/picture format/view mode button on your television's remote control first. If your remote does not have one or if this does not correct the problem check the resolution on the cable box next. If your television displays 720p make sure the cable box is set for 720p, or 1080i if the television supports that resolution. First you have to make sure your tv in on the right input not the tv tuner input. Then use the hdzoom# button on the cable remote. If you have a satellite remote it might say format or aspect or you might have to go into the cable box/satellite receiver menu and choose 1080i crop or 1080i stretch to get the right picture size.

Tv resolution


It will produce 1080i or 480p using the component input jacks. No way as sharp as 720p. This is of coarse your cable provider gives it to you, and your using a box.

42' hd tv has stretched picture makes people look fat


you have a few settings to size the picture as best as it can be sized.
format, aspect and size . try setting the TV (remote) format to full, fill or just.TV size to 16x9.
If also using a cable/satelitte remote set it to 16x9 size, stretch format/aspect and 1080i output. then just press the # key on cable remotes or format key on Sat remotes to size it best on each channel.
with 16 formats available, today's TVs are doing their best to keep up.
hope this helps

I have a 52" samsung that is 14 months old. for some reason it is out of sync. the picture is too wide and does not fit cable shows or dvd's properly onto the screen. tried different picture size settings...


FCC says it only has to display a picture, with 16 formats it tough to get it to ever fit right, use 16x9 or full on TV remote , then 16x9, stretch 1080i on cable box

Rca scenium 52" has light bar area down each side


I take it that you have watched many hours of 4x3 video on this 16x9 TV . What you see is evidence of screen burn, like they used to warn about with the old "pong" type games with stationary objects. The 4x3 pattern is burned into the phosphor in the projection tubes. the area of the burned pattern is not as efficient as the unused areas that make up the 16x9. If you watch enough 16x9 it may even out somewhat, but will never be perfect. Replacing the tubes will fix it, but they're pricey, and you may be subject to it happening again, depending on your viewing habits.

PC via DVI to D52W20


I'm using a component dongle from an ATI x800. Never have had a problem. My resolution is 1664x936. I noticed that this RCA auto formats the screen size with the DVI-D or component, so you'll have to make the adjustments via your video card. Windows display properties might not let you select that resolution, so hopfully your video card software will allow you to pick a resolution. It would not let me use any kind of 720p resolution only 1080i settings would work.

Picture stretch top/bottom for 1080i HD input


First thing to look at would be the source, make sure that this source whatever it may be is set to display a 16X9 format. Your set may simply be showing what it see's and it may be seeing the 4X5 format and giving you a problem

Black bars in the picture


For Models: CC4352, CC4362, CC4393. Your camcorder has a wide format recording mode that lets you make recordings compatible with the 16x9 format. When 16x9 is activated, the camcorder records black bars at the top and bottom of the picture to produce the wide-screen (movie) effect. This is also known as "letterbox" recording. Do not use this mode unless you have a compatible 16x9 TV. When played on a regular TV, black bars appear on the screen. If the 16x9 feature is activated on your camcorder and you want to turn it off, press REC/PAUSE to pause recording, and repeatedly press DIGITAL EFFECTS until no digital effects display appears.
