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.

I re-scanned my channels this weekend because I lost HD on 2 of my local channels. Now I have HD back, but I have 2 black lines on each side the picture on all of the HD channels. How do I get rid of the...


A broadcaster will transmit an HD channel in 1 format. This may be 720p or 1080i, both of which are HDTV formats. HDTV formats have an aspect ratio of 16:9. SDTV or standard definition broadcast have an aspect ratio of 4:3. Because not all content is record in an HD format (ex: Judy Judy), the broadcast is faced with 2 options. #1, stretch the 4:3 picture do that it fills the 16:9 canvas. #2, simple place black side bars on each side of the 4:3 image. What you are seeing is the latter of the 2 options. You will notice a change during the evening programming. The bars are only there when the content is not HD. You can use the WIDE feature of your TV to stretch the picture so that it fills the screen, just like broadcaster option #1 above.

Zoom Function and Verizon Fios TV


On the verizon FIOS tv box, turn the FIOS STB on, and turn on the tv, tap the following buttons on the Verizon FIOS STB )in this order) 1-Power, then Select, then Menu. This will bring up the FIOS STB HD options. Arrow down to 4:3 Bypass and set the bypass option to 480P. Hit power 2 times, once to turn off, second time to turn STB back on. This should on standard channels give you the zoom feature back. This worked on my Samsunf 5053 TV model.

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.

HD Channels have grey strip above and below picture?


If the problem does not occur on ordinary channel please contact your local station and ask for the proper settings for viewing HD in your area.

You need HD cable to go from your top box to your tv.

Sony Bravia


Unless it is actually chopping off the side of the image, this is nothing to worry about. The TV is just keeping the picture in its original aspect ratio, as in if the broadcast was originally square shaped, the tv will not attempt to stretch it. You can change this setting either using your cable remote or in the tv menu; unfortunately I can only adjust mine from the Directv box I have so I can't help you there. With regard to the HDTV channels, I would bet you are referring to HD channels that are broadcasting standard 480 definition footage. In that case, your receiver will still interpret the signal as being HD, but the network itself will insert those bars (and you have no control over that)
