Cannot optimize picture width on new flat screen HD

New Regza HD 42" flat screen HD.  Great pic. After setting up with HD box and cables, natural/native gives picture that seems too wide on HD channels. Channel logos slightly off screen bottom right and on sports - missing score boxes on left. Cable co says it a TV setting, but thought I tried them all. What am I missing?

If you are connected to an HD cable box or satellite box via component cables, make sure they are firmly seated at each end.

New flat screen hdtv has a fuzzy picture


Yes you will get a better picture quality out of a cable box if you get an HD cable box.
The reason you are getting the diminished picture is due to the signal you are feeding the TV is an analog signal. The newer HD TV's are made for digital TV and this older technology shows all its flaws on this type of TV.

When you get the new box understand that the same channels you are getting plugged directly into the tv are still going to have some grainy look to them but the good thing is that a lot of them are starting to be rebroadcast on HD channels and that is where your new toy will truly shine.

Enjoy your new TV...

Good Luck...

Changing TV set up to cable from "air"


Try setting tv to channel 3 or channel 4, this should coincide with the back of satellite box (a little black switch with a 3 or 4). then switch channels with your satellite box. I would recommend using another output off the satellite box to feed the other tv, a splitter loses some signal quality an can go bad as well. get a long rca cable to feed tv!

Cannot set screen width


Both the TV and the Cable box have Aspect(height/width) settings. You must confirme the setting on the cable box and then do the TV.

1. Set TV to Native, this should show image exactly as the cable box sends it.
2. change Aspect settings on the cable box until you get one that works
3. if you get a good one, then your OK. You will just need to find a setting between the 2 devices that work for you. Also, these settings may change automatically for the TV or cable box based on the channel

Vertival Color Lines


We had the same thing happen to us on the right-hand side. A technician told us yesterday that the Motorola Cable Box (supplied by Shaw Cable) places a border on Non-True HD Channels. Because we didn't place our picture setting to 'full-screen' each time we viewed these channels and burn line was created. He gestimated a replacement screen runs about $800.00 Canadian, but we have a 3 year extended warranty and will receive a new TV. He also said it happens on all big screen tv's that use a cable box creating borders on Non-True HD Channels.
