    We have tried all of the picture sizes and still on the cable box say we are watching channel 5 on analog or digital the picture will fit the whole screen. But when we change it to the HD channel say 605 the picture is small no matter what picture size we choose it will not fit the whole screen. Only on certain programs. Can you help with this?

Hi lm522,
You must change the aspect ratio.

  1. While viewing an image that dosen't fill the screen
  2. With the original remote
  3. Press  the Picture button on the remote
  4. This you allow you to cycle through options like Wide, Fill, Cinema
  5. Find the one that looks the best.
These instructions are not very specific, I will need the TV make and model for better instructions. Let me know how it goes and please rate this solution.

Size of screen


If you have black panel os sides the picture is not HD. Not allways the HD broadcasting have HD shows. The advertising for example is not HD. Check the picture size in the tv to be "allonged" and play with the screen size with your cable box remote. Usually is # button.
From what I know LC42D62U has no TV Guide feature.
