You might not like this solution but change your resolution on your cable box/satellite tv receiver. If it is on 1080i change it to 720p. But before you do that try the hd zoom# button on your cable remote. On satellite remotes it might be format or aspect. If that button does not change the picture size then change the resolution and then try that button again

If you haven't tried the wide/view mode/picture format picture resizing button on your television's remote or the option within your menu be sure to do that as well.

The television might not be on the right input.The cable box/satellite tv receiver might be connected to the television's tuner and an av/composite/hdmi input. Make sure that it is not on the tuner input.

I am getting black borders top & bottom on some channels and side to side as well on Fox on my Dish Net receiver 322 to analog TV.


Hey there! Becki Barned from Dish Network customer service here. The black borders are usually caused by watching standard definition programming on a high definition television. Try to change the format on your tv. Either by pressing the * button below the 7, or trying a format or display button on the original tv remote. Hope this helps!!!

Hi,
if you mean the left and right sides of screen, look for a button on remote might be labeled several things, like picture size, aspect etc.. the borders pop up when you go to a non high def channel. some chs put borders all around the picture in those cases you won't be able to get rid of those.
