Question about DISH Network 311 DTV Receiver
See above, pretty clear.
Dilon, 311's have no aspect ratio adjustment and is not able to switch from the standard 4:3 setting therfore if it is connected to a TV with a large screen the TV has to stretch the picture to fill the screen thus cutting off portions of the picture. I suggest you get a HD receiver as they will be able to change the format and aspect ratio but even these make some sacrifices to fill the screen as well. Most notable of the losses will be the ticker tape at the bottom of the screen where sports scores usually are displayed. Thhis is all a result of the plethora of screen sizes on the market and will not be resolved anytime soon that I am aware. Dish has a 211 which is a one room HD receiver, 612 which is a one room dual tuner receiver with DVR, 222 which is a dual tuner two room receiver with HD capability to the first location and SD to the second, 622 and 722 which are both dual tuner two room DVR receivers with HD to the first location and SD to second. I am sorry I could not bear better news but I wanted to thank you for using Fix Ya and if you need further assistance please let me know.
