I have this same problem with my hitachi 55 inch ultravision luckily i have a warrenty still in effect so i called them and they said... Analog channels are not formatted for wide screen aspect (4, 6, and 10 ect.) this is a normal thing don't worry. It automatically returns to 4:3 because analog is full screen only, and it will return to 16:9 otherwise or whatever you have it set to. Nothing you can do but the good news is your TV isn't broken!

Change the aspect ratio


you can set the aspect on either remote. the best thing to do is set the proper aspect on the tv remote for regular (sd) channels, and then again for hd channels. the tv should remember these aspect settings and revert to them when you switch back and forth from sd to hd. if you have satelite, there is usually another aspect on there you can change depending on the program, but i usually recommend leaving it alone. if you are on an hd channel with side bars, switch to the sd version instead of changing aspect so you dont have to keep flipping it back and forth.

Picture not to edge of screen


That is because you are watching the picture in the 4:3 aspect ratio. This is normal when you are watching a channel that is being broadcast in 480 or digital. But once you tune to a station that has 1080 or at least 720p which is true high def then the picture should expand to 16:9 aspect ratio. It will switch between the two automatically as it determines what type of signal it sees. You can force the resolution to change by pushing the format or aspect ratio button on the remote but you will lose picture quality.

Picture format



The HD reciever shouldn't be the problem.

If you recieve an image with a 4:3 aspect ratio, the image will be displayed at that ratio on your HDTV unless you specify otherwise. To do so go to your TV's Setup screen

setup
Choose picture formats
select smooth wide as your default

***Some digital (ATSC format) stations may transmit 4:3 images in a way that will not allow expansion. You will be unable to adjust the picture format.

Hope this helps!!!

I change the screen to zoom and aspect control will not change at all?


If you're viewing an "HD" channel, the aspect ratio will not change.
Try switching to a non "HD" channel or DVD and try again.

RCA D56W20 picture problems


More information is required to properly troubleshoot this problem. How is your television connected when you are watching HD? Do you have HDMI for this, do you have a satellite or digital cable box? For analogue are you using regular coax antenna (cable TV), or are you going through a cable or satellite box?
This could be related to the aspect ration setting. perhaps you ahve changed your aspect ratio from 16:9 to 4:3 or some other setting. If you are connected via HDMI, then the digital signal may be "normalizing" your picture during HD, but reverting back to the other setting.

Check you video settings very carefully. HD televisions are very difficult to tweak properly.

I cannot change aspect ratio


If you are trying to change the aspect ratio on the television make sure you are sending an HD signal Via Component cables. I am not aware of a way to get HD cable without a PC cable card or box, it could be that your television is not receiving the proper signal (analog, or composite) to switch the aspect ratio on your particular television.
