Question about Panasonic TH-50PX75U Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Aspect Ratio Memory?

I currently view cable through a HD cable box connected to the composite connection. My preferred viewing is "Just" but every time I turn on the TV, it always reverts back to the 4:3 ratio with the bars.

Any way to make it remember to do that when I turn on the TV? I have having to punch a bunch of buttons every single time.

Thanks!

Problem could be the fact that you are connecting with composite cables. You should never connect an HD receiver with an analog cable like composite. It does not give a HD picture. You want to hook this up with HDMI. This might also help your problem because of the fact the native aspect ration of composite is 4:3.

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.

Optimum samsung cable box


Not all pictures are in 16:9 Some old movies and commercials never were made in HD in the first palce. Look on the remote to see if there is a button marked " view mode " or something similar that will allow you to stretch the sides of the picture.

The screen does not show the whole picture and it is cutting the top or the bottom of the picture


If the button on the television remote that is meant to adjust the picture size i.e. wide or format/view mode button is not working then you need to adjust your cable box. There is a hd zoom# button on the cable remote towards the bottom that will fix this or sometimes the button will say format or aspect. You may have to go into the cable box's settings and choose crop 1080i or some other picture format setting that will keep the heads from being chopped off. You may have your cable box on the wrong resolution for your television. Your cable box may be connected to the television in two places, and your television might be on the wrong source/input for hd viewing.

The aspect ratio on the HD channels are full screen - which is correct. However all other channels have the incorrect aspect ratio. (reduced size) A solution please???


Many times HD channels will come in more clear, but with a smaller picture or widescreen view. There should be a button on your remote called 'wide' or 'zoom' and it will let you adjust the size on the fly. If you adjust the view while watching an HD channel, and you switch to a standard channel, you will have to change the ratio back.

How do I get the picture to fill the screen instead of having all that black space on the sides?


Using one of the older antennas on an hdtv when receiving broadcast channels can cause that.
It might just be the channel you are on. You should have a wide button or aspect, format, zoom or view mode on the television remote to adjust the picture size.

If you have a cable box or satellite tv receiver you can try the hd zoom #, aspect or format button on it to adjust the picture size.

You might be connected to your cable box two different ways and you may be on the wrong input

The program you are viewing may only be broadcast that way

I can't get my view mode to change. It is on stretch right now but is cutting off the bottom of the screen. The other view modes don't show up . My remote works on other things but not this feature.


If you are connected to a cable box or a satellite receiver make sure its resolution is set to 720p then look on the remote that came with it for the hd zoom # button. You may have a format or aspect button on that remote to change the picture size

When the resolution on the connected device is wrong this can happen.

Can record Sky programmes but not view live.


You must connect up the TV to the SKY box, via Audio Visual cables too, in order to watch, recorded programs. You need to hook, up, Component, HDMI, or Composite, You select it by an EXTERNAL channel.
Connect the cable running from the wall into the "In" port on the Sky Box HD receiver. This cable brings in the signal to your receiver. Make sure the cable is securely fastened to the receiver, otherwise you might experience image and audio issues.
Attach an HDMI cable into the HDMI port on the Sky Box HDTV receiver. The HDMI is a single cable that provides both HD audio and video signals.
Plug the other end of the HDMI cable into an available HDMI port on the HDTV.
Power on the HDTV and the Sky Box HDTV receiver. Press the "HDMI" button on the TV's remote control. This will display the cable contents of the HD receiver onto the television.

The picture is too large for screen and is cut off on top and bottom. Possibly on the sides too.


There is a button the remote control that will resize images. However this could also indicate that a tv is in the wrong input and or connected to the set top box (ie cable box or satellite receiver) incorrectly. It can also indicate that the set top box is set to the wrong resolution.

Buttons on the remote control could be view mode, aspect or format, and # hd zoom.

The tv could be in the input for the rf connector or the composite cables instead of being on the input for the component or hdmi cables.

The tv could be connected to the set top box with RCA cables or a coax cable instead of being connected with component or an hdmi cable.

Bravia Z-Series KDL-40Z4100/B 40-Inch 1080pBecause if you connect this to your in home network you can stream music videos and music off you PC onto your TV without the need for extra wired or memory cards etc.

Otherwise if you don't need this feature the other options are identical on the other TV so it is just as good a choice.

Aspect ratio problems on Samsung LN-S2651D Flat Panel TV


The aspect ratio (zoom) button on the cable remote had been changed. On Brighthouse the # button toggles through the zoom settings. It's not a tv issue, it's a cable fix.
