Question about iLO V27DMBX Television

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.

I suspect you have your setup in HD and you are getting the widescreen version which fills the screen horizontally but not vertically. Play with the settings menu items until you get the image you like.

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.

DVD WS does not display right on Samsung 40'' HD 1080P LCD TV


Check the aspect ratio of your widescreen DVD. I'll assume that your flat panel TV is widescreen, which would mean it has a ratio of 16:9. Some movies are even wider than that (i.e. 2.35:1), so it would be normal for you to see black bars at the top and bottom. Look for a WS DVD described as 16:9 (usually shown on bottom on back). This should fill your TV screen and not distort the image. If you still see the black bars, you will need to check your DVD menu settings for widescreen aspect, and supply more info on the DVD player and TV.

Wide screen lcd simple question.


Hi pooing stone,

You may sometimes find that even with a television referred to as “widescreen,” widescreen movies still have letterboxing.

This is likely because the movie you are playing is still in the ratio used at a theater. While most televisions are 4:3 for the more square-type or 16:9 for widescreen, a theater screen is much wider still. Unless the movie has been reformatted specifically to 16:9 for your television, you will either see letterboxing or lose portions of the picture by zooming in.

If a movie is available in several ratios, I suggest thinking of all the options before buying. Although purchasing a movie reformatted to 16:9 will prevent the black bars, purchasing it without any reformatting of the size will prevent you losing part of the picture.

FYI: It is very common with Blu-Ray Discs that widescreen means original size, not 16:9.

Thank you,
Jason,

High Definition Channels leave bar on top and bottom


More then likely it has to do with the aspect ratio of what you're trying to watch. Most DVD's are in widescreen format (2.40 to 1) like you would see in a theater but an HD tv is a 16 by 9 format or 1.85 to 1. Look at the DVD case and see. Also some HD shows are in widescreen so you'll get the same thing. You're only option to fill the screen is get movies in 1.85 to 1 or use your zoom functions however these do tend to distort the picture.

My widescreen tv...


I purchased a 32" ilo widescreen back in Oct. of 06. It worked great for about a month before I had similar problems as you're having. Suddenly my remote wouldn't work (except the power button) and none of the buttons on the TV itself would work (except the power button). I was able to watch movies but unable to switch the video over to TV mode. Very frustrating. The Walmart in my area wouldn't take the TV back. The only way I was able to get it fixed was by sending it to ILO's service center. (800) 216-5156. Fortunately less than three months had passed since my purchase plus I still had my receipt. Because of this they were willing to fix the problem free of charge. If more than three months have passed I believe they charge for labor costs but not for parts. Once I sent my TV out ILO had it fixed and back to me within three weeks. Luckily I had another TV around while I waited. I hope this helps.
