Question about Panasonic TH-50PX75U Plasma HDTV

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.

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 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.

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.

Cannot change aspect ratio of picture when ratio button is pressed on remote. Batteries in remote are good. Everything else on remote works. Sony KP-57HW40


If you are connected to a HD cable or satellite box, the aspect ratio is set by that box. If it is set for 1080i 16:9 wide screen mode then your TV is locked at that ratio. This is good considering you have a Hi-Scan 1080i television in the Sony KP57HW40. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks...

Picture


Depending on the manufacturer of the cable box, there will be a menu somewhere regarding aspect ratio using the terms - cropped, zoom, and a few other terms as well. You probably want cropped, which will cut some of the sides off, but you wouldn't miss the picture as a whole when view at full screen. Hope this helps!

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.

I cannot change aspect ratio


If you are trying to change the aspect ratio on the television make sure you are sending an HD signal Via Component cables. I am not aware of a way to get HD cable without a PC cable card or box, it could be that your television is not receiving the proper signal (analog, or composite) to switch the aspect ratio on your particular television.
