Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Aspect ratio Bought STR-DA5300ES. Worked fine with 3-year old Hitachi Ultravision HTDV until 2 days ago. Then I had to manually select the aspect ratio for analog channels using my Hitachi remote. Today all my analog channels have black frames (top, bottom, and sides) or black bars (sides) or black frames with grey bars on the side. Even some of my HD channels show black bars. I have 6 aspect settings on my tv (4:3 normal, 4:3 expanded, 4:3 expanded 1, 4:3 expanded 2, 16:9 normal, and 16:9 expanded). Only 4:3 expanded 2 and 16:9 expanded fill my screen. Any suggestions?

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.

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.

Any writing on the top/bottom of the screen is hidden. Can only view partial words on screen


It sounds as if the aspect ratio is not set properly. On the original remote there is a button labeled "aspect".
Try pressing it and see if you can choose a selection that will make the picture fit. Thanks for using fixya.

Not sure but you might be confusing your aspect selection on your DVR with aspect selections on the tv itself. Make sure you use your hitachi remote & check all available aspect ratios. Find one that suits u best

On your remote there should be a button that says "Aspect" or "Pic Size". Press thisuntil the video fills the screen. If you do not have the remote of don't have the original remote, this setting can be found by preesing the menu button on the tv, go down to video settings and it should be listed under "Aspect Ratio", change it untill the video fills the screen.

Dimished screen size


Your in standard def mode. You need a hd signal in order to utilize the 16:9 ratio. If you have a hd signal going to it, then you need to push the aspect button on the remote and select 16:9. But all sd signals will display in 4:3 or as you stated the middel 2/3 of the tv

Normallly, if the format button on the remote for the television does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made. For example: A Motorola Cable box needs to be set up to go to a wide screen when an analog signal is detected. It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the hook up of the peripherals. Hope this helps.
