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.

I asked why the heads are cut off on my tv. I was told to adjust aspect ratio on the screen menu. I cannot find aspect ratio on screen menu. HELP


It will be listed as screen option, it will be "widescreen" "panoramic" and regular broadcast image, no such button as aspect but the above are aspect options.

My lg plasma tv is cutting off the edges of the shows we are watching. I cant find a setting that will take care of it. Can you help


hmm normally these settings are found in the picture settings of the set top box or just a setting in the tv's picture settings now there might be an option to say fill screen that may work best for some or leave the tv in 16:9 some broadcasts may only be in 4:3 at times this is normal broadcasting and not much can be done unless the setting on the picture option is set to fill screen

WHY DID MY VIORE SCREEN RESIZE TO SMALLER SCREEN


Screen size depends on the broadcast signals aspect ratio, the TV adjusts for that automatically, the picture can have no bands or be banded top and bottom or on both sides.

I have sound but no picture on my tv


This is a popular question. Most of the time you either need to make sure all connections are not loose or just need to turn off your tv and receiver and unplug. Wait for 1 minute then reboot.
I recommend this short video as it walks you through some diagnostics for other possible problems.

I have a 39 inch element tv i cant program the cable channels


Typically you can access the menu, select "tuner" or something similar, make sure you're selected either on CATV or ANT (or similar), then do a channel scan. Should be pretty straightforward. Oh, and make sure you actually HAVE cable. If it's digital cable, you may need an external converter box for it to work.

How to program my lg magic remote with my dish tv box


I'm wondering if the original question "How to program my lg magic remote with my dish tv box" was ever answered, and if the problem was eventually identified and resolved. (none of the answers above seem to be solutions).
I have the same problem - unable to control my Dish receiver (VIP722K) with my new LG Magic Remote - and LG support wasn't able to help. Is this a known compatibility issue?
