DOES NOT FILL SCREEN HORIZONTALLY


You can change how your tv displays in the video setting menu under display. You will have a choice between 4:3, 16:9, 16:10, cinema or automatic. I think to fill your screen the best you should choose 16:10 but this is not going to guarantee that all channels will fill the screen. It still has to do with how it is being broadcast to you.

How do you set cable to 16:9 output?


Different channels are broadcast in different aspect ratios, depending on the network and the show(s) being broadcast. Many older show are still broadcast in the 4:3 ratio to avoid distortion. Currently, there is nothing in the broadcast signal that tells the TV what aspect ratio to use. Therefore, TV remotes have a selection button (mine says "P.SIZE") that allows the user to change the aspect ratio to optimize the viewing experience.

How to adjust aspect ratio on sony kdl-v40xbr1


Hello
To take advantage of the wide mode feature on your TV, Set the DVD players' aspect ratio to 16:9. For details, refer the operating instructions supplied with your DVD player. Aspect ratio must be set with DVD player. Not with the TV. OK.

Ok, so I need help. My mother just bought a flatscreen tv from best buy and had it delivered today by the Geek Squad. However, the picture makes the people look fat and the sound is tin-like. She can't...


The people look fat and stubby is due to trying to display pictures that were made for old TV 4:3 aspect ratio and you are now trying to fill in the TV screen that has 16:9 aspect ratio. The only way for you to see proper pictures is to set the aspect ratio to 4:3 mode or set it to automatic to let the TV select correct aspect ratio of the pictures, the bad part is that you will see black bars on the left and on the right of the pictures, see more details with regarding to the aspect ratio in the user manual.

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.

Cannot change aspect ratio when im playing a game it cuts off part of the screen


Normal aspect ratio is 4:3, and the wide aspect ratio is 16:9. If you play a game meant for 4:3 and you change the TVs aspect ratio to 16:9; part of the picture will be cut off. It is not the fault of the TV.

Occasionaly a wide screen dvd plays only in full screen


The aspect ratio on your DVD player is not set correctly. Look for a SETUP button on the remote control, there should be something like "QUICK SETUP" or something similar on the setup menu, if not then go to the menu that has the aspect ratio settings listed. Change your aspect ratio to 16:9 WIDESCREEN, and this should solve your problem. Your aspect ratio is 4:3 which is for a regular TV, if the images (especially people) look real skinny and tall on your TV then your aspect ratio is not properly set. Good luck to you!
