Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40V3000 Television
I bought the sony kdl 40v300 and connected to time warner scientific atlanta hd dvr box with component video cables. I set up the box to allow all available broadcast formats from 480 to 10180i. Problem is that the picture size on hd broadcasts like espn hd do not fill the screen or are distorted/stretched. The proper picture can be had on the "normal" setting for the tv, but it is shrunken with borders on all four sides. If I select wide zoom, the picture is distorted/stretched with thin bars at the top and bottom. I have tried to adjust picture size using the cable box but all of the adjustments are disabled. Only the sony picture adjustments work but none of them achieve proper picture size, full screen dimensions. Please help.
Assuming you all have comcast and using an hdmi cable
first access menu (hit it twice) and go to set picture format, choose passthrough....or in your case auto hdmi
then turn box off, press guide and info on the front of the box, proceed through the setup, advanced is more in depth..lol...
select 1080, 720, and then either the standard or widescreen 480s to your liking.....
now check your tv settings to accommodate
