Question about Philips Televison & Video
I recently purchased an hdmi to dvi cable which links my digital box to tv (philips 42" with ambilight). Since adding this cable the picture size has changed to widescreen giving a black bar at the top and bottom of the screen. I've tried the obvious things like attempting to alter the screen size in the tv settings (which when in anaologue there are several screen size options) but only have the option of 4:3 or widescreen (in digital mode).
Your digital box should have aspect settings as well. When watching HD TV and or movies there is a possibility to get the black bars on top and bottom. It all depends on the ratio it was filmed in.
