Aspect ratio USB/HDD source LG 37LS570S/T

When choosing source HDMI I can switch between zoom/16:9/4;3/full screet etc. When playing videos via USB/HDD or streaming I can only choose between original size and full screen. However when choosing full screen the aspect ratio is kept to original and no stretching is possible. Very annoying when playing 4:3 videos (letterbox watching). Can this be fixed?

SOURCE: LG 32'' LCD TV aspect ratio self switching

I have an LG LCD TV with the same problem.
The solution is to go to
MENU
OPTIONS
FACTORY RESET
And select HOME rather than STORE on initial setup.
Mine was set to store as it was a display model.
That means that whatever picture setting you make they will reset after 10 minutes.

SOURCE: When I use the "zoom"

Hi,

I may need some more details from you to solve this, but I suspect the problem is that you are trying to change the DVD display settings while the disc is playing. This wont work - it doesn't on every DVD player I know of. To change the DVD aspect ratios, stop the disc, remove it from the machine, then change the aspect ratio, re-insert the disc and try again.

There is another important factor here. I assume you have a widescreen TV, in which case it has an X:Y aspect ratio of 16:9. Movies have an aspect ratio of about 21:9 which is why they appear with black bars at the top and bottom. If you stretch/squeeze a 21:9 picture into to fill a 16:9 screen from corner to corner, then objects will become taller and people will "look like trees".

If you have tried changing the DVD aspect ratios with the disc removed and are still unable to solve the problem, please let me know the model numbers of your Insignia TV and DVD player and I will then be able to provide further assistance.

I hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

Insignia Ns-15MS0832 How do I in large the TV picture when using HDMI


Hi, On your remote select menu in the list should be something called (aspect ratio) 4:3 , Zoom, Full , 16:9 etc.. These settings should make the screen larger or smaller. Also in the list should be something called HDMI for source connections (DVD, Cable box, Dish) etc. You should be using HDMI cables for these for better quality signal. Good luck.

The text along the sides of the tv screen are not completely in view


you need to change the 'zoom' on the tv by the remote.
Normal mode frames the 4:3 video to the 16:9 picture area by displaying it in its original aspect ratio, with vertical gray or black bars on both sides of the screen. The disadvantage of this method is the fact that the image is small by virtue of not using the entire width of the screen. This is also known as the 4:3 mode.
Full mode Full mode horizontally stretches the 4:3 video evenly across the entire width of the screen. This is the proper mode to display anamorphic video. If used for standard aspect ratio video, everything on the screen will appear wider than normal. Contrast this with anamorphic video displayed without processing on a 4:3 display, in which people on the screen will appear taller than normal. This is also known as the 16:9 mode.
Zoom mode Zoom mode evenly stretches the picture both horizontally and vertically, until the picture fills the entire width of the screen. This crops out the top and bottom of the picture. This mode is used for letterboxed and open matte video.
14:9 mode Main article: 14:9
In 14:9 mode, the picture is magnified more than in Normal mode, but less than in Zoom mode, while retaining the original aspect ratio.
Wide Zoom mode Wide Zoom mode, also called Just mode, Horizon, or Smart Stretch, progressively stretches the picture horizontally, less in the middle and more on the edges. This allows normal aspect ratio video to be displayed across the entire width of the screen, with minimal cropping, and with much less of the unpleasing visual stretching effect of Full mode.

How can I get full screen image without distortion on tv viewing? I only get 4:3, zoom, full and justified. Full looks stretched horizontally with tv, looks ok with dvd.


Hello
Most of the telivision transmissions are comes at an aspect ratio of 4:3. Wide aspect ratio is 16:9. If you try to see a picture with aspect ratio 4:3 to wide 16:9, it will look like stretched. it is not the fault of the tv. Most DVD recording have the aspect ratio of 16:9 [Wide]. This aspect ratio will be displayed correctly when your tv is also set to wide mode. If you select normal mode at this condition, the picture will be displayed elongated. Ok Your Tv has no probelm.

TV zoomed in


Look at your remote or On-screen menus for ratio settings. The remote might say zoom or ratio. The menus will probably have it under video and then Aspect Ratio. You'll probably need to hit go through several settings to get to the correct ratio. (some choices are 4:3, 16:9, Full-screen - the best choice depends on the set and the source video)

I hope this helps.

Why did my picture become big so I can not see the sideline information


Press the RATIO button repeatedly to select the desired picture format. You can also adjust Aspect Ratio in the OPTION menu.
  1. Set By Program. Selects the proper picture proportion to match the source’s image. (4:3 → 4:3, 16:9 → 16:9)
  2. 4:3. Choose 4:3 when you want to view a picture with an original 4:3 aspect ratio, with gray bars appearing at both the left and right sides.
  3. 16:9. Choose 16:9 when you want to adjust the picture horizontally, in a linear proportion to fill the entire screen.
  4. Horizon. Choose Horizon when you want to adjust the picture in a non-linear proportion, that is, more enlarged at both sides, to create a panorama view.
  5. Zoom 1. Choose Zoom 1 when you want to view the picture without any alteration. However, the top and bottom portions of the picture will be cropped.
  6. Zoom 2. Choose Zoom 2 when you want the picture to be altered, both horizontally extended and vertically cropped. The picture taking a halfway trade off between alteration and screen coverage.
  7. Cinema Zoom. Choose Cinema Zoom when you want to enlarge the picture in correct proportion. Note: When enlarging or reducing the picture, the image may become distorted. You can adjust the enlarge proportion of Cinema Zoom using D / E button. The adjustment range is 1~16.
