Re: my picture is to big for the screen
Have you tried resizing it with the button again ?
some channels just will not look as good in a zoom or aspect ratio when they are older recorded movies that are not digital recorded or in HD ( high definition )

It should automatically switch to 1080 when and only when there is a HD signal present. Otherwise it will be in 480 and you will need to use the format button on the remote to change the picture size. If it does not switch to 1080 and you know for sure you have a true HD signal present, there is a problem with the unit.
Hope this helps,
Hi Thanks for using FixYa. Please check your cable
box settings first. Sometimes the remotes have a picture size button on them,
and the in-laws could have pressed that by accident. Check the TV
settings, press Menu Button & then go to WINDOW/IMAGE SIZE. Now select
normal size. Also check the settings of the converter box (if
you are using it). The boxes also have a peculiar problem: Unless users
manually change settings from show to show, the picture from many stations
either won’t fill the screen, or it will be so big that part of the picture is
cut off by the edges of the screen. The solution is to press the “zoom” button
on the remote that comes with the converter box. That will expand the picture
so it fills the screen. If still the issue persists, then you’ll need to go to
the service menu. To go to the service menu please start with the TV off and press
mute > 1 > 8 > 2 > power the remote on. Now the TV will come on
with the menu displayed and from there you can change the settings as required. Please do rate the solution and revert for
further assistance. Thanks Rylee
I called Hitachi and the solution is in your cable remote not your tv remote. Your tv has a aspect menu as does your cable remote. Based on your cable provider you should have a settings or menu button to change the zoom or aspect of your screen. I had the same problem and have Comcast as cable and this worked for me.
Menu- Setup- V. Position + (from either the front panel or remote) until more of the lower picture is visible. If the picture size is entirely too big, you'll need to change your aspect style. This model will only allow you to change the aspect style if it is not in 1080i mode. However, most newer HD converter boxes allow this feature. I would check the converter manual.
