Question about Televison & Video
Previously, with the TV picture size set to 16:9, HD channels correctly filled the entire screen while non-HD channels had letter-boxing on the right and left sides of the image. Without changing any settings, when I turned on my tv today, the picture on HD channels now appeared stretched, with letter boxing above and below the image. On non-HD stations the picture now fills the entire screen. The TV picture size continues to be set to 16:9 aspect ratio. I have an HDMI connection to Comcast digital cable box. I tried unplugging the cable box, and unplugging the tv with no success fixing the problem. I also have a DVD player connected and playing a movie, the picture appears to be fine. When I changed the picture size setting on the TV to "zoom" the HD channels then fill the screen (with some loss of the image either on the top/bttm or on side depending on which zoom option is selected). In the zoom mode, the non-HD stations look very distorted. In short it appears that the TV isn't displaying the channel correctly. Moreover, this happened without my changing of any settings. I loose part of the screen view in 16:9 and 'just scan' modes. I can't view the score ribbons in hockey (or basketball) in any mode except 4:3, but that is distorted since I'm viewing HD channels. I've toggled through all screen size settings, but can't find one that displays the entire picture. Heads are cut off, tickers aren't visible, etc. What setting corrects this?
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.
