Question about Vizio Gallevia GV42LF 42 in. LCD Television
In watching some shows, the heads are cut off. Also, if there are subtitles on the bottom of the screen - I can't see them. However, if I select the guide and the channel I'm watching goes to a small window at the top of the page - then I can see the entire picture and the bottom of the page words - - but this is only while I have the guide up - covering the main portion of the page.
This is so annoying. When watching showtime - Ocean's Eleven last night to be exact - in certain times of the movie I could only see a portion of Brad Pitt's face - - c'mon - how awful is that.... HELP!
Are you watching with using time warner cable or an HDTV converter box? because if you are....on the bottom of your cable remote..on mine its the # button..above it says aspect...press that a couple of times and there are different zooms and stuff.

SOURCE: Heads cut off on the screen
Ocean's Eleven. Best remake movie, I think.
I believe your TV is in "ZOOM" mode for the screen. This will make a 4x3 picture come up closer to fill in the 16x9 screen, but this cuts off the top and the bottom.
Keep pressing the WIDE button on your remote until the picture looks best.
If you have HD channels, the screen mode should be on NORMAL. HD channels will have the 16x9 screen format.
The non-HD channels will have 4x3 screen format. When the screen mode is on NORMAL, you will have the cut off picture on the sides because the 4x3 format will not fill in a 16x9 screen.
