Question about RCA L26W11 26 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
I just added hdtv and when I'm watching regular stations and even some HD stations it blacks out each side of the screen and puts the show in just the middle of the screen. Every setting I put it on it will still do that. Just a few stations will take up the whole screen. If i hook up regular cable its fine and the show will take up the whole screen. How do i fix it so the show will take up the whole screen when i have it connected to the box?
If the station is not transmitting 16:9 you will have bars on the sides and sometimes top/bottom. The TV shows you the size that is being transmitted unless you change the settings to zoom or stretch which distorts the image to fill the screen which defeats the purpose of HDTV. The best alternative is to use 2 inputs. 1 for SDTV (s-video) and one for HDTV (component) and switch between them depending on what you are watching.

If you press the zoom- button on your remote it will give you options for the screen size. The "stretch" option might help.
