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.

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.

Picture on screen is too big head of people are cut off it does not show complete picture


Use your cable or satellite tv remote to adjust the aspect ratio. If you have cable there is a button on the remote called hd zoom and it has this symbol: #. On the satellite tv remotes it usually says format or aspect. You might even have to go into the cable box/satellite tv receiver menus to adjust the aspect ratio/picture format. Once you have done so you can fine tune the picture even further with the television remote's wide/format/aspect/zoom button. Also check and make sure your television is on the right input and that your cable box/satellite tv receiver is set at the right resolution for the television 1080p/1080i/720p.

Can't fix polaroid tv help!


Well a couple of questions if I may.
1) How do you have the TV connected to the Cable box?
A) Composite cable 'usually a yellow colored RCA to another Yellow RCA connector' and then plugged into your TV's Video input. This will only give you 3x4 video aspect as its only limited to 480 lines of resolution. This would explain why you only get a 3x4 aspect.
B) Component cables, Usually three cables 'RCA connector's 'Red, Green and Blue' colored ends.
This will give you output resolutions of 720i up to 1080P which is your High Definition outputs and will fill your screen from top to bottom and side to side if your cable box can actually receive High Def. It should since all local Television stations had to go to Digital HD last June 09.

Blessings always,

Picture is wider than the screean


There is a service menu that techs can use to adjust vertical and horizontal widths. If it is not an aspect ratio problem then it is likely that it needs to be adjusted.

Picture size/aspect ratio in HDTV and upconverting DVD


In the digital world, you can't have a 4:3 aspect ratio DVD title (720x480) on a 720p (1280 x 720) / 1080p (1920x1080) display without some kind of centering or stretching to some extent. (square vs rectangle) Now, on a 16:9 aspect ratio title (wide screen format) you should have any scaling issues regardless of the pixel resolution. Despite what the sales person told you, trans-coding ("upconverting") lower resolution titles to a higher resolution does not increase the quality of the image. Any attempt to do so would be only to try to reduce block noise and any kind pixelation at higher resolutions. (blurring square pixel blocks)

In the analog world, the quality of the image is based on the encoder and signal depth. If your TV excepts HD analog, you might be able to have your cake and eat it too. That would force your display to convert an analog signal into a digital resolution, letting the TV hardware do all the trans-coding. Manufactures are completely phasing out analog signal receiving, but might have the RGB RCA connectors for backwards compatibility. Eventually, it will not be supported and you will be forced to buy higher resolution content.

Screen resolution


From the Console Settings screen in the System area of the Xbox Dashboard, you can configure the video output of your Xbox 360 console.

Change your display output settings from this screen. Display settings include screen resolution and screen dimension (or aspect ratio, either standard or widescreen).


In some cases you can select an "Optimal Resolution" button, which appears only when Xbox supports the native resolution of the TV or monitor and automatically applies the best setting but that might not work with your tv.

If you are using VGA you must choose from among the following output resolutions: 640 x 480, 848 x 480, 1204 x 720, 1280 x 720, 1280 x 768, 1280 x 1024, 1360 x 768, and 1920 x 1080.  Much like a PC you would want to select a lower resolution (640X480).  That will make your fonts larger.


Screen Format: The default setting is Normal (a standard 4:3 aspect ratio); select Widescreen to change the output aspect ratio to 16:9 if you have a widescreen TV or monitor.  You should select normal and not widescreen for a standard tv.

Hope this helps,

Connecting dvi cable straight to acer monitor


The cable box is probably outputting a resolution the monitor is not compatible with. Computer monitor and television resolutions are usually different, and not cross compatible in some cases.

For example, wide screen monitors are usually 16:10 aspect ratio, while TV is usually 16:9 aspect.

The AL2216wbd is a 1680x1050 display, while HD TV is either 720p (1280x720) or 1080i (1920x1080).

If your cable box is set to 1080i that would be too high for the monitor. You will need to set it to output at 720p, and even then you will probably get a vertically stretched picture since the monitor has a taller aspect.

Playing back widescreen problem


The TV itself uses the CTC203 chassis and is not capable of switching between normal and widescreen. This is an issue with your DVD player and not a problem with the TV.
