Setting the aspect of a dct6412 PVR

I recently changed TV's and the aspect is different on the new one. I can't see the guide or diagnostic menu from the DCT box to change it to the one for the new TV. I can only see the Diagnostic Menu on the front of the box itself and it is all in code. My question is: Is there a way to reset the box to an aspect setting that i can see on my new TV so I can fine tune it properly?

Hi Rod,

Thanks for Using FixYa. If its a 4:3 normal TV or a wide 16:9 TV then you can view high definition picture by using the ARC button on your remote control to change the wide mode(Auto,Letter Box, Pan & Scan). Also check its free user manual for more information.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks

SOURCE: I have an error code 01 on my sagem PVR set top

Unplug the box from the mains and leave fro 15 mins. Unplug the antenna (aerial), plug back into the mains and switch on. It will show 09 error; ignor. Press ók'on the remote. The box will reset and reboot into stby. Plug antenna back in and switch on. With a bit of luck you will be able to do an automatic channel scan (refer to your manual).
Er 01 refers to a failed upgrade, so you may have corrupted firmware, which is not good.

This happens because the receiver is no longer capable of detecting the presence of the channel and this is caused by the failure of the tuner. This is a hardware fault , the entire PVR must be sent to be repaired - the tuner will have to be replaced.
But i must say that this is the eight question related to a failed tuner that i got this evening in less than 2 hours. Has been a big storm or a big power outage) around you lately?

My PVR recently froze & a technician came to our home & replaced it with a new one. Although the new one does work, I can no longer get any of the stations from 60 through 68.


Don't deal with that technician again! About the only simple thing you can try is to run the PVR Search function again. This will be accessed from the Menu button somewhere, maybe Menu - Setup - Search. This will search for all the clear stations you can get there, and set them up as shown in the TV Guide.

I have recently purchased a LG LCD TV Model 32LK330. Everything seems to work fine except all of the people look as if they had gained an additional 100 pounds. Is this distortion natural.


It is aboslutely normal. The aspect ratios on LCDs are different from the good ol' CRTs and CRT based projection tvs. As a matter of fact when I got my first LCD tv, it took me a few months to get used to it. You can try other aspect ratios though by going to Menu-> Picture->aspect ratio and try the different settings available to see if any of them works for you.

The picture size resets when the tv is turned off then on.


It also resets when you switch to a different Input... IF you have the Auto Aspect Ratio set to On! To set the Picture Size so that it won't change back each time, switch to the Input you wish to change (you'll have to do this for each Input separately), then go to- MENU > Picture > Theater Settings > Auto Aspect Ratio > and set it to Off. Once you've done this, your Picture Size setting will remain, even after powering off, or switching inputs ;)

Edges of picture being cut off LG 37LG30 LCD TV


Yes, it is possible the settings from your cable box maybe set to the wrong ratio eg:letterbox. Depending on what type of box you have, look in the cable box menu for a settings option, then change the aspect ratio to a different format.

The picture on my LCD 52" 650 series TV makes everyone look short


There is an aspect ratio setting in your menu options. You will have to change the aspect ratio so you get a normal screen.
This will most likely fix your problem.
If by slight chance it doesn't, you will have to remove the back of the tv and find the manuyal adjustments for it.
All newer Tv's have the aspect ratio/picture change setting.

Intermittently Working Correctly with DirecTv


Update your Harmony remote control software on your PC to the latest. Go into the TV device settings. The software should recognize if there is an update to your TV's IR commands. Try the same things with the DVR.

It's also possible the TV and/or DVR are locking up due to IR commands that are being sent too quickly. The remote has a setting for the delay between commands sent to the same device as well as the delay between commands sent to different devices. Try adjusting these settings:
  1. In the Harmony remote software on your PC, click the "Devices" tab.
  2. For the "TV" device, click the "Settings" button.
  3. Click the dot next to "Adjust the delays" and click Next.
  4. Adjust the "Inter-key" and "Inter-device" delays to something higher and click Next.
  5. Follow the steps to save the changes.
  6. Repeat steps 2-5 for your DVR device as well.
