I have a Vizio. If I use the HDMI input I can only get normal and zoom w/ picture buttom on the remote but get full picture on all cable supplied HD channels but not on none HD channels. However, if I switch cable input, I have the TV set up with both inputs from the converter box, I am able to have the options of normal,panoramic,wide and zoom on all non HD channels. I don;t like the black bars top and bottom of the HD channels with this imput mode so I switch back to HDMI. Maybe your TV is simmilar.
This is a software issue with both the TV manufacture and the cable box provider. This will only be fixed when the cable company and TV manufacture sit down and work out their problem. Some cable company has taken the first step by updating cable boxes with different software.
i know this problem, happened to me with the comcast Motorola HD receiver box. The key is with the setting in the cable box.
Switch on the TV.
Set the channel to normal tuner channel 3 or HD input.
Turn off the cable HD box.
Press the Menu Button on the Cable box or the remote.
You should see a Menu.
Use the cursor keys to navigate
The default setup is also one of the option, Right click on your cursor keys acts like the computer keyboard enter key and applies the change.
The default setup is 16:9, the shacking would happen if you have set the picture type to "PAN SCAN". change it to either 16:9 or 4:3 Letter Box. The shacking should stop.
Hope it helps.
