It will be depending on what is connected. Do you use scart or HDMI or the antenna from the TV itself?
Via scart or HDMI there are signals which can force the television in specific television format.

SOURCE: Wrong aspect ratio LCD tv: Model Polaroid FLU-1911S

You cant change the aspect ratio. Polaroid built this unit with a non-standard format. Here is what I found:

Don't be thrown off by other wide-screen aspect ratios. When shopping for wide-screen displays--especially flat-panel LCDs--you may see aspect ratios such as 15:9 or 16:10. They are, for all intents and purposes, close enough to 16:9 to be considered synonymous. Unless you're extremely sensitive to geometry, it's doubtful you'll notice the slight stretching or squashing they introduce.
Sorry!

SOURCE: Aspect ratio problems on Samsung LN-S2651D Flat Panel TV

The aspect ratio (zoom) button on the cable remote had been changed. On Brighthouse the # button toggles through the zoom settings. It's not a tv issue, it's a cable fix.

SOURCE: LG 32'' LCD TV aspect ratio self switching

I have an LG LCD TV with the same problem.
The solution is to go to
MENU
OPTIONS
FACTORY RESET
And select HOME rather than STORE on initial setup.
Mine was set to store as it was a display model.
That means that whatever picture setting you make they will reset after 10 minutes.

Hdmi from laptop to tv small picture no sound


First the picture size is probably related to the screen resolution or aspect ratio. In Windows 7, you can adjust the resolution by right clicking on the desktop and choosing Screen Resolution. Make sure you do not exceed the limits of the video graphics output of the laptop or the refresh and resolution of the TV. (Without knowing your hardware, I can't tell you the actual settings you should use.) Usually HD TVs are either 720p or 1080i. Alternatively, check if you can change the zoom or aspect ratio (4:3, 16:9) on the TV. Those settings may fill your screen. (It could expand the image past the viewable edges of the TV or distort your image though.)

For the audio, you should check the Sound outputs. Again in Windows 7, click Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Manage Audio Devices. Under Playback, see if you have an option for HDMI sound. If you don't have this option, you will need to connect an audio cable between your computer and TV. (If the TV has a VGA input with a PC audio jack, use a 3.5 mm audio patch cable. Otherwise, you'll need a 3.5 mm to RCA audio adapter or cable.) Make sure that the audio isn't muted.

If you have a different OS, the specific commands will be slightly different but similar in Windows.

I hope this helps.

Cannot get full screen picture. seems like I still have a 36 inch tv. It is a 42 inch LG plasma hdtv


It seems like you're expecting a 16:9 ratio picture. If you're sending a 4:3 ratio signal to the TV, you'll get a 4:3 ratio picture. An option would be to use the remote and set the TV to a 16:9 ratio picture, but that'll stretch the picture and make everything look fat. Another option would be to use the remote and zoom in, but that'll chop off the top/bottom of the picture a bit. Either case would be annoying. Some make matters even more annoying, some programs are broadcasted in a 16:9 ratio signal, but the actual picture is really 4:3 ratio. So...... as long as the pictures don't look skinny, fat, or chopped off, just accept it. If you're really that picky, just watch new Blu Ray movies only.

This is a problem with aspect ratio. You need to find the correct combination of settings between your Comcast menu settings and the television menu settings. I personally have Directv, but there should be something of the same effect in the Comcast menus. On the remote control that came with your cable box, press the menu button and navigate to the settings, and from there display or picture. There should be a setting relating to the aspect ratio, and the same applies for the built-in TV menus using your Visio remote. A typical widescreen LCD has a ratio of 16:9 or 16:10. I hope this helps in some way!

HD programs work fine, however, the standard pictures are distorted. I had this once before and someone fixed it but not sure how.


You probably need to to turn your aspect ration on the TV down. Newer HD screens use a 16:9 aspect ratio for HD content which is a wide screen format. Standard definition TVs and programs use a 4:3 aspect ratio. Most flat screen TVs have an option to display in 4:3. This option is most often found in Menu/Setting>Video Options>Aspect Ratio. For standard definition programming you want 4:3, for HD you want 16:9.

I re-scanned my channels this weekend because I lost HD on 2 of my local channels. Now I have HD back, but I have 2 black lines on each side the picture on all of the HD channels. How do I get rid of the...


A broadcaster will transmit an HD channel in 1 format. This may be 720p or 1080i, both of which are HDTV formats. HDTV formats have an aspect ratio of 16:9. SDTV or standard definition broadcast have an aspect ratio of 4:3. Because not all content is record in an HD format (ex: Judy Judy), the broadcast is faced with 2 options. #1, stretch the 4:3 picture do that it fills the 16:9 canvas. #2, simple place black side bars on each side of the 4:3 image. What you are seeing is the latter of the 2 options. You will notice a change during the evening programming. The bars are only there when the content is not HD. You can use the WIDE feature of your TV to stretch the picture so that it fills the screen, just like broadcaster option #1 above.

Just called Sony about this same problem...taking your CABLE BOX remote, push the # key on the bottom right of the remote (it also says HD Zoom on mine). You can cycle through 4 or 5 zoom options...make sure you are on an HD channel to see the changes. :)
