Youtube on my vizio 470i tv is off centered

The TV can display images in four different modes: Wide, Zoom, Panoramic, and Normal. Each mode displays the picture differently. To change the screen aspect ratio:
1. Press the MENU button on the remote.
2. Use the Arrow buttons to highlight the Wide icon. Press OK.
3. Use the Arrow buttons to highlight your desired screen mode and press OK:
• Normal preserves the content's original aspect ratio. Since the 4:3 aspect ratio is not large enough to fill the TV's screen, black bars are added to the left and right of the display image.
• Wide stretches a 4:3 aspect ratio picture to the edges of the screen. Since the picture is being stretched, the display image may appear distorted. If the program is already formatted for widescreen viewing (1.85:1 or 2.35:1), then black bars will appear on the top and bottom of the display image.
• Zoom expands images with black bars to fit the screen.
• Panoramic expands the display image to fill the screen.
images may appear wider than intended.
If you are watching widescreen (1.85:1 or 2.35:1) content, black bars will still appear on the top and bottom of the display image. This option is only available when the TV is displaying a 480i/480p source.

The image is too wide

It would be helpful if I knew what else you had in the setup. Mostly I just need to know if you have a cable box, I will assume this is the case.
I had this problem with my Tv, if it running through a Bose system the problem is most likely with the Bose system, you need to go into the options and go to picture and select Full Screen instead of widescreen.
If you are not using a Bose system then the problem is still fairly simple.
  • Look at your remote for the Tv, locate the menu button and press it. A menu should come up.
  • There should be a video or screen option in the menu select it.
  • There should now be a wide variety of options to choose. Choose the normal option.
  • Then close the menu the video should now fit the screen.
If this doesn't work then it be your cable box, to fix that you follow the same steps just using your cable box remote instead of the Tv remote.
If this doesn't work comment and I will see if I can figure out another problem.
Hope this helps.

How do I see the hole picture on my Philips match lll line. Black corridors on each side cuts away the sides of the picture. /t

You may actually be looking at the entire picture. The newer televisions have a 16:9 aspect ratio (16 units wide for every 9 units high). The older sets had a 4:3 aspect ration, and a lot of material was made for the 4:3 screens. There are three ways to look at this material on a wide screen set: use the "shadow box" you describe, stretch the picture sideways to fit the screen, or expand it to fit width and lose the top and bottom of the picture. Your choice depends on the material and your personal preference.

Now, if you know you are looking at wide screen material, you need to correct a setting in the view format options. These settings go by various names in the instruction manual and on-screen menus - "resolution", "aspect", or "display format" are common. I haven't seen the menus on a Phillips set, so I don't know what term they use.

The screen is wider than the screen on my tv. tv screen to view is expanded like for a wide screen tv

There should be a format button on your remote control. If your using a satellite receiver or a cable box the format button might be on that remote.

How do you adjust screen size in HMDI mode screen display is centered and not wide screen

That is one big problem with the Vizio, They do not have this option. You may have better luck trying to adjust it through your cable box if you have one. They do offer an option on some of there remotes that says "wide" this will magnify the picture to full screen in most cases, it has been the only solution I have been able to find, besides the setup on the cable box. I hope this helps, Good luck.

Changing picture to wide screen full screen on Samsung HPS4253

I just had my digital cable installed yesterday. He had to jack with it for about 20 minutes until he got it to work. He accessed some sort of internal menu on the cable box by pushing power and menu at the same time. He had to select some sort of 4:3 overide option and that finnaly did it.
