Question about iLO V27DMBX Television

1 Answer

Widescreen? When we play a DVD from netflix we have a line at the top and bottom. Our 26" Ilo HDTV is supposedly widescreen so why are we getting this black line at top and bottom. We cannot seem to find any settings to get this changed. Can you help?

The answer was hiding in our Toshiba DVD player manual. We press setup then arrow down to General setting-then Video-then TV aspect- then select 16:9 wide. When finished press setup to exit.

The picture is crunched like if you were watching a letterbox movie.(with the black at the top an bottom of the screen how do i correct this


Black on top of bottom is widescreen.. Some dvd's are made in only widescreen. Usually you have to buy a full screen disc to cover the entire screen or change to format to 16:9 or 6:9 or whatever it handles/

You may see the black on top and bottom, it is annoying at first, but the picture is so much wider and you can actually see more on a widescreen

Widescreen tv=widescreen movie still have black on top & bottom


Sorry, you didn't provide enougb information for anyone to accurately answer your question. The most important thing you omiited was the nature of your video source. If anyone does answer this, I assure you it will be a wild guess. Here's my wild guess:

Your HDTV has a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9. For every 16 units of width, there are 9 units of height. That ratio matches the exact ratio used in widescreen television broadcasting. However, most feature films (movies) on DVD have an aspect ratio of 2.35:1 or even wider than that. These films will display with horizontal black bars at the top and the bottom, so that you can see the full image. Unless you choose to use one of your TV or your DVD player's options to zoom or crop the image, the bars are 'correct' and there's nothing wrong.

Another possibility is that you have not configured your video source, such as a DVD player, to 'know' that you have a widescreen TV. Nearly all DVD players ship configured to output using a NON-widescreen aspect ratio, so you must adjust this setting using your player's setup menu. The same is true for most cable boxes and satellite receivers.

Finally, just because your TV is widescreen, the video source itself may not be. Most standard-definition broadcasts are NOT widescreen, for example.

If you re-post your question with adequate information about which video source exhibits this problem, I'm sure you will get much more specific and helpful answers.

Widescreen


Unfortunately, a cinema screen is even wider than a widescreen TV. Because of this (in order to keep the original aspect ratio), even with a widescreen TV you still end up with the black bars top and bottom.

Check the aspect ratio of the DVD (Should be printed on the back of the case somewhere).

Unless it says 1.85:1 or 16:9 Anamorphic, you will get the black bars. (Many films on DVD are 2.35:1 or even wider!)

Have you got any different picture modes on your TV. I've got a Toshiba and it has something called 'cinema mode' which does eliminate the bars. Unfortunately it does it by zooming in on the picture slightly, so you loose a bit off the side of the picture and the image does get a little grainier.

Hope this helps.

Most if not all DVD's are 16 by 9 even in 4.3 mode you are going to have those bars on this TV. Some television have a zoom feature to get rid of that but not this one.

Lines on top and bottom on projection TV


What sort of lines? - do you mean like it is in widescreen mode with a black band top and bottom? Do you mean you have clear straight lines, or streaks or scratch-like marks? Is it the same for all input sources (cable, DVD/VCR, satellite, PC, camcorder etc.? Could you post back a photo of the lines? Waiting your info:)

Playing back widescreen problem


The TV itself uses the CTC203 chassis and is not capable of switching between normal and widescreen. This is an issue with your DVD player and not a problem with the TV.
