Question about Vizio L37 Television

1 Answer

Some hd channels have the bars on the side and top and some do not. I currently have the picture set to "Full" so I would think the hd picture would be universal. If I stretch the picture it is distorted. Also, non hd stations have the bars on the side as well

How to get full picture on my tv?


First, ensure your tv is using the highest resolution possible (Usually 1080 for flat screens) by using an HDMI cable from the receiver to the television, and that you are on the correct input. Second, ensure your tv is not sizing the video by using the 'picture size' or 'aspect' or 'ratio' key on the remote that came with your tv (Not your DISH remote). Third, tune your DISH receiver (with your DISH remote) to an HD channel (for VIP model receivers, when you tune the channel to an HD channel, an opaque white 'HD' appears insude the blue box at the top of the screen). Fourth, hit the star key on the remote, while watching the screen. On the right hand side, near the top, it will cycle as you hit repeatedly the star key, the style of screen widening. Hit the key as often as you need to make the screen appear the way you want it to. The receiver will remember your setting for all HD channels. When finished with the HD channel, tune your receiver (with your DISH remote) to a SD channel (any channel in the guide that does not have the HD icon). Repeat the fourth step.

For Hopper/Joey family receivers, hit menu, settings, screen size. Follow the instructions to resize your screen to match your preference. When finished, repeat step four above on each an HD and a SD channel.

I can't get the full screen on some hd channels and during commercials. It goes from full screen viewing on some channels to the picture shrinking and having a border around it.


There are a few picture sizes out there 4:3, 16:9, as well as some for movie screens. New televisions are 16:9 and when you are watching a true HD program, it will fill the screen perfectly. However the program may be broadcast in one of the other formats. This results in the bars on top/ bottom or on the sides. This is true for commercials too. If the commercial is or isn't in HD will determine if there are bars or not. All this is normal operation.

Cannot get full picture on the screen


Hi Mic,

Can't get full picture ?
If this is for running a dvd if it is not a
full screen version of the dvd then you
will not get it.
If it is widescreen addition you will get the
black bars at the top and bottom.

If you can't get full screen in normal mode a
few things could cause this.
One if your running from your "say" direct tv box.
You will need to try your Format button...second
button on the left of the remote.
Second you could try the restore settings on your
tv, it will restore the settings to the manufacturer's
original settings.
Keep in mind that not all tv channels are full screen.
Example: If I watch nfl gameday in HD it is full screen.
If I select the same program but, not in HD the screen
is smaller. thing it goes to a 4:3 aspect ration..
Switch back to HD and it's full screen again.

hope this helps some.

Gray bars on side of picture


Yes. There are options. Strech, wide, full, zoom, and gray bar are common options. Some times when aa HD channel is not broadcasting in HD you will also get a narrow picture.

Picture ratio


Programs that are recorded in 16:9 format appear full screen on a 16:9 TV. A program recorded in a standard 4:3 format will either be stretched to fit the screen or have side bars to fill the screen area. In the case of HD channels, the black side bars are part of the picture which is being broadcasted.

On some HD channels that do not go to the full screen the top of the screen is not filled with a picture


That is a problem with all HD service, not all the content on HD channels is infact HD so it doesn't fill the screen. Only thing you can do it zoom the picture in or put up with it.

I think its almost criminal that cable and sat companies charge us for HD channel and don't play all HD content. But such is life.

Can't get full screen


I have a Vizio. If I use the HDMI input I can only get normal and zoom w/ picture buttom on the remote but get full picture on all cable supplied HD channels but not on none HD channels. However, if I switch cable input, I have the TV set up with both inputs from the converter box, I am able to have the options of normal,panoramic,wide and zoom on all non HD channels. I don;t like the black bars top and bottom of the HD channels with this imput mode so I switch back to HDMI. Maybe your TV is simmilar.

Black side bars on hd channels


You may have to refer to the instruction manual for details.

There should be in the menu set-up an option to set the aspect ratio for the different broadcast modes. Normaly, when viewing a 4:3 picture on an HD 16:9 set, the sides will be cut off, otherwise the picture will be stretched or compensated.
