Re: aspect ratio problem

The unit is on 16:9 because you use a video ( composite ) input.

Go into your Menu and where you see Aspect Ratio 16:9 press the right arrow key to switch it over to 4:3

I can't change the aspect ratio on my 1080 UB. It's locked in the "normal" view? How can I override this?

first of all check the video setting of ur DVD player or satellite receiver which ur connected to the projector. in its video setting select output video format aspect ratio as 16:9. the projecter will output the format what it get in its input.
u can elect the aspect ratio in the projector remote just press the ASPECT button to select different format

My ProShow Gold production on my ACER laptop (set

I have asked a couple of gurus I know and they seem to think the solution is to set the laptop to aspect ratio 1024x768 to match the projector. Then change it back later. I am not in the position to test this unless it happens again with another projector somewhere else. What I wanted to know was how should they have set their projector. G.

Presentation mode is off...

I'm going to guess that you have a wide screen Dell laptop with a 16:10 aspect ratio and a default resolution of 1280X800. The wide screen is great BUT most presentation grade projectors do not have a native (pixel for pixel) 16:10 mode. Instead they still prefer a display input with a 4:3 aspect ratio like your old square CRT or standard definition TV. Why do they prefer a 4:3 input? Mainly because Powerpoint prefers to display a slideshow in a 4:3 mode. Because of this Dell, in their infinite wisdom, created the 'presentation mode' utility in an attempt to automatically convert the VGA output of your laptop from 16:10 to 4:3 on the fly. In my experience this is an annoyance at best and at worst can seriously impact the size and quality of the projected image.

The best thing you can do when you connect to a projector is ignore the presentation mode alert and manually set your laptop's resolution to 1024X768 for an XGA rated projector or 800X600 for an SVGA rated projector. This will cause your desktop to look stretched on your laptop but will give you by far the best projection image.

Projector Image Problem

Hi There

Your Projector switches to a 16:9 ratio when hooked up to a Video signal and to a 4:3 Ration when hooked up to a PC signal.

You can manually change this in the Menu functions if this bothers you.

Simply go to Aspect Ratio in your Menu's subfolders and press left or right once you scrolled down to it.
