How to get full picture on my tv?


First, ensure your tv is using the highest resolution possible (Usually 1080 for flat screens) by using an HDMI cable from the receiver to the television, and that you are on the correct input. Second, ensure your tv is not sizing the video by using the 'picture size' or 'aspect' or 'ratio' key on the remote that came with your tv (Not your DISH remote). Third, tune your DISH receiver (with your DISH remote) to an HD channel (for VIP model receivers, when you tune the channel to an HD channel, an opaque white 'HD' appears insude the blue box at the top of the screen). Fourth, hit the star key on the remote, while watching the screen. On the right hand side, near the top, it will cycle as you hit repeatedly the star key, the style of screen widening. Hit the key as often as you need to make the screen appear the way you want it to. The receiver will remember your setting for all HD channels. When finished with the HD channel, tune your receiver (with your DISH remote) to a SD channel (any channel in the guide that does not have the HD icon). Repeat the fourth step.

For Hopper/Joey family receivers, hit menu, settings, screen size. Follow the instructions to resize your screen to match your preference. When finished, repeat step four above on each an HD and a SD channel.

I have purchased a Samsung Led 50 inches tv in USA, The picture is not displayed full on the screen. Can you please suggest?


These are generic instructions for all TV's and all Remotes:

1. Press 'Menu' key on Remote (or 'Setup' key).
2. Go to Setup, View, or Picture tab (whichever one you've got in your Remote's Menu or Setup)
3. Change your Zoom or View aspect.

NOTE: Depending on the dimensions of your TV, you simply may not be able to view the entire picture using a correct aspect ratio (NOT stretched). On my 42" RCA is use a 4:3 Zoom setting to fill my screen but, it chops a little bit off the top & bottom. It's the best I can do with my current setup.

LG Plasma TV Full HD - Inbuilt Tuner


Google the model number parts--suspect a sustain type board as these sets use two boards---each drives half the screen for picture.

SHARP AQUOS 46INCH CANT GET A FULL PICTURE ONLY IF I USE ZOOM WILL THE SCREENBE FULL


Hi Anthony,

You're describing what is called letterbox and pillerbox. Letterboxing is when there are two horizontal bars - one at the top and one at the bottom of the screen with a wide picture between. Pillerbox is when there are two vertical bars - one on the left edge and one on the right edge of the screen with a tall picture between.

The settings on your TV (and on your cable box, satellite box, DVD player, etc.) tell the TV how to display a picture that will not fill the screen completely. If the program source (an older video-taped TV show, non-widescreen version DVD, etc) was not originally "shot" or saved in widescreen format, the TV offers you a choice on how to display the image. They ask if they should stretch or zoom to fill the screen (and you have to deal with the skinny / tall images or lost portions of the picture); or maintain the aspect ratio (not stretching or zooming) by leaving a part of the screen blank (grey or black) by inserting bars left and right or top and bottom of the screen.

Start out by telling the devices that send pictures in a format that matches you TV's screen ratio. I am assuming you've got a wide screen HDTV which would mean it should be set to "16 x 9" (a.k.a. 16:9) ratio display. If you have it set for 4 x 3 (a.k.a. 4:3) you should change it. Look for a setting on your TV that asks about stretching, zooming, etc. as this will be an issue when receiving picture from an off air antenna on your house when a TV station is airing an older, non-wide screen format TV show or movie.

TV signals provided by Cable TV or Satellite provider must be HDTV type signals. If you have the standard TV service (non-HD) no picture sent by them will ever fill the screen. This is because Standard Definition TV (SDTV) is not capable of those types of signals. You will have to bump up your subscription to HDTV service to get full screen pictures.

I hope this helps!

Hau do i move the picture sidles


Not enough information...
What type of tv and model etc.

One thing you should be aware of.
If you do not have HD tv...say direct tv
then you maybe stuck with a smaller picture.

Example:
If I run my direct tv HD I get a full picture but, if
I am running it in a non HD channel...the picture
is alot smaller with the black sides and top.

The other option is on your remote you should
have buttons to control stretch etc.

Use those and see if they help.

As far as dvd"s go...make sure your not using
the letterbox versions...full screen versions should
give you ...well...Full Screen.

good luck
