Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

How do I get a wide screen, hi def display on a wide screen Hitachi 55HDT52? Right now I have to choose between chopping off half the heads or losing the captions. I tried to contact Hitachi about a possible softward upgrade but have had no reply. They only have email contact; no phone numbers.

I found a phone number for Hitachi and was told that's the way these TVs work. The problem isn't the TV but the broadcast format and their's no way to adjust the height of the picture on the plasma TV sets. I told them it's something they should consider. My $300 plasma montor can do it so why can't a $5000 TV? He laughed.

Image outside of bounds of television.


There should be a format button on the remote you can hit. This should cycle thru all the "formats" that the set can do. 16x9, 4x3, wide mode, Full mode, stretched mode, etc.. Let me know if that helps you.. Happy holidays... Jay

Picture format



The HD reciever shouldn't be the problem.

If you recieve an image with a 4:3 aspect ratio, the image will be displayed at that ratio on your HDTV unless you specify otherwise. To do so go to your TV's Setup screen

setup
Choose picture formats
select smooth wide as your default

***Some digital (ATSC format) stations may transmit 4:3 images in a way that will not allow expansion. You will be unable to adjust the picture format.

Hope this helps!!!

Dimished screen size


Your in standard def mode. You need a hd signal in order to utilize the 16:9 ratio. If you have a hd signal going to it, then you need to push the aspect button on the remote and select 16:9. But all sd signals will display in 4:3 or as you stated the middel 2/3 of the tv
