Re: display size problem

Sound very much like you are in 16X9 mode with a 3X4 signal. That is not uncommon. Do you lose any information, top or bottom with a HD signal? Bink.

Picture size won't fit screen. Can't see scrolling text at bottom (e.g. sports scores on ESPN)

hi there,

its probably not the tv but the set top box you need to fix. go to the settings and select the mode you want ie. widescreen 16:9 etc

then go to the tv and select the full mode or widescreen mode at 16:9

that should solve your problem. it takes some time to find the combination between the set top box and the tv to get it right

good luck

Image size too large, cannot see all of sports scores scrolling on the bottom

hey voiolentce. if you press the # button on the cablebox remote control you can fine tune the zoom by those 20 pixels you want. you are most likely set at zoom 1 currently. thats where i was when i had this same problem and it took me days to figure out that all i needed to do was press the damn # button. i couldnt see any of the scores on espn sports games and its been driving me crazy. hope this helps!
