Open Question

Can't get aspect ratio to work using PC input.

My dad has the Curtis LCP4210 42 inch plasma tv. He runs his computer through the PC input, but when we try to change the aspect ratio using the remote control, the tv says that feature is not available. We've tried changing the resolution on the actual computer itself, but neither option fixes the problem (which is his annoyance at the stretched out images due to an improper aspect ratio.) I've looked all over online for a solution and have found nothing. My other thought is to try and get a video card for the computer which will allow us to run the PC through the HDMI inputs on the tv (which in my mind would allow us to change the aspect ratios as normally.) Before I invest money into the problem via HDMI cables and a new video card, I wanted to exhaust all possibilites with the PC input. Thanks for any help you may be able to provide!

SOURCE: lost remote for sanyo ht30746 tv

You can buy an exact remote from a company called Remote control warehouse for 39.95----Google the model number and you will find them.

It is very common that "universal" remotes will do many functions but not ALL that the original remote did--considering this it may be a good idea to get an original remote---part number on this site is: 6450750977for the remote for this model Sanyo.

I hope this helps you and if you have any questions let me know.

SOURCE: How do I change my remote for TV to Input Video 1?

There should be a button on your remote denoting "Input." If you connect the DVD player to the TV on "video input 1" then push the input button on the remote or TV itself until the DVD appears on your TV (which will be Video 1). Some TVs must have the component (in your case) the "DVD" player connected to the TV before the TV will recognize it. Make sure the DVD is powered up and then push the input button until the DVD player appears on the TV. Depending on your TV inputs, there may be multiple inputs like, Video, Component, DVI, or HDMI. The above are listed in the respective order of "quality." HDMI being the best. Whatever input you hook the DVD player up to on the TV will be the "input" you will look for when pressing the input button. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: how can i change the aspect ratio on RCA mm52110

I'm going to take a stab at this out of the dark but okay!
1) is there an 'Aspect' or a 'picture size' button on your hand held remote control?
2) If you scroll through your 'On Screen Menu's' do you find a feature that will change the aspect or picture size?
Many of these TV's have this button feature on the remote control.

I have a 50" Plasma


Hi, the aspect ratio is set incorrectly for the source material or the screen is simply set to 4:3 aspect (old TV size) manually. There will be a menu function or an aspect button on the remote for doing this. Set it to auto which is usually good enough for most viewing though the ratio may change during adverts and back again for the film on tv watching. This can be annoying so when on tv mode observe the ratio set when the film is on and manually set this ratio, usually 16:9. The display will normally tell you the ratio setting at the point of change so you can do this. I hope this helps.

I connected my media center PC to my new Sanyo DP50740 50" Plasma Television using the PC input on the back of the television. The instructions say that it supports 1360X768 with a 16:9 aspect ration...


No,13060 resolutions will not support by some tv correctly,will shift whole picture about to 6 inches to the right.That why,must use the PC Control panel to adjust to 1024 for the video to center.For the wide aspect 16:9 ratio,just find another aspect ratio to for expandsion to fit the entire screen.

I can't a full image on my toshiba 37RV25R


That's mighty vague of you. What input are you using? Is your source material's aspect ratio 16:9? There are a lot of things to consider. For some reason, though, I get the feeling that you're trying to hook the TV to your computer...

The maximum resolution supported by the TV's PC (15-pin D-sub) input is S-XGA (1280x1024 -- an aspect ratio of 5:4). The 37RV525R's native resolution is 1920x1080, though, an aspect ratio of 16:9. Obviously, you'll want to use a compatible (16:9) resolution. The TV would probably be happiest with 1280x720 @ 60Hz (a.k.a. "720p"). I've read that the TV will accept 1366x768 @ 60Hz but I'd just use 720p and call it done.

The differences between 1080p and 720p are barely discernible on a screen this size (especially if you're watching from across the room). No matter what input you're using, the source must have an aspect ratio of 16:9 or it will not be accurate and full-screen on the 37RV525R.

Panasonic TV 50 inch plasma


Dear RyanVa21;
Try changing the picture size with your set's remote, press the aspect ratio button. The remote must be the original Panasonic remote.
Please let me know if that did it.

Thanks!

Aspect Ratio not responding/always in "Full" mode


Normally, when I see this problem in the customer's home, I find the main culprit to be the cable box. The remote for the cable box may have a button on it to change the format or picture size. You may have to go into the menu of the cable box to change the format setting. Hope this helps.
