How to change the screen size on a Westington TV

In order for you to change the screen size on your Westington TV you have to press on Format on your remote (it is the button between the volume and the channel, right under the input button). As you press on it, it will change the display. From
  • Standard: Picture is displayed in its original size.
  • Fill: Picture is displayed to cover the entire screen.
  • Overscan: Picture is scaled down to fit the display area.
  • 1:1 Mode: Matches the incoming resolution exactly to the pixels without any scaling.

And now everything should be good!

White flickering line across top of tv with non HD channels

It appears that when you go back to normal tv from hdtv you are able to see the overscan area. Change the aspect of your image with the appropriate button on your Vizio remote and or cable remote. Apparently the button that changes the aspect on the Vizio remote is the wide button. The cable remotes will usually have hd zoom (#), aspect or format.

Vizio 42 in TV LCD HDTV white line across to of

That white line (usually jagged) is actuallly part of the transmitted picture. However, you are not intended to see it because it is located in what is known as the 5% overscan area. Your TVs today are more than just cable ready... they are a versital, technology filled multimedia display. You can see that line because the screen size or wide mode you are using is intended for 1080p/24 signals. You have 0% overscan with this screen size setting. This allows you to see ALL of the picture, including portions of the picture the broadcaster did not intend for you to see. You can change your screen size using the Wide feature in the Setup menu. See pg.62 of your user manual for details and descriptions of the various wide modes.

Also, Check the picture menus for a pixel-to-pixel or 1-to-1 mode. This allows you to watch an HD signal with no overscan.

Connection to MAC Mini

No changes can be made to the picture size on the panel. Most PCs have a facility to reduce the size by software means to correct this sort of problem (for example in 'Display properties'). As for the Mac; since it's not my area of expertise I can't say for sure but I'd be suprised if it didn't have this feature.
