Wide screen TV

Question

Scott K

When I first got my wide screen tv channels that were not HD would just set in the picture normally, now after a few months it stretches the picture to fit the whole screen and it is blurry to watch. I didnt adjust anything, although I have tried to get it back to the way it was and I cant find out how. Has anyone ran into this before, if so how did you correct it?

i have a panasonic plasma and i had to set it to "native" in the video adjustment section, i don't know how else to explain it. if all else fails, you should be able to call an 800 number in your manual.

How are you getting you non-HD channels? Dish? Cable?

There should be a button on the TV and/or dish remote that will change the picture settings. Might be called "format". On my TV and Dish remotes that is what it's labeled as. You may have to push the button a few times to cycle through the different formats until you get back to standard.

I have Dish network, they have both. On my tv remote it is set to standard, but when I switch a channel it is in stretch. I just checked and the Dish remote also had a format, switched that and we are back to normal, thanks Lmitout!

The Dish box will "remember" which format you chose and what type of programming you're watching (SD or HD) and set it accordingly the next time you visit that channel. This way it'll automatically stretch the SD programming to fill your screen when you tune to a SD channel, but it won't stretch the HD programming when you flip to a HD channel.

I prefer to leave it on standard as I don't care for the picture quality when the SD channels are stretched to fill the screen. The black bars on each side bother some people, but the PQ bothers me more.

      Hey Guys, I'm wondering what the water temp on the St.Croix is. I Haven't herd anything, all I know is that Catfish become inactive after it drops below 60F. I want to know if they have already become inactive, you would think we would at least have until October.    One more inquire,  anyone one know about a nice carp lake north of the metro. Most people don't like fishing for common carp, but they are a great fall fish to catch when they Get 30+ plus pounds.

      All right man I'll make sure to tell you how I do, I have also been looking at the sunrise river. The sunrise Looks like one of those rivers that all the local kids fished in the 80's, But then it got polluted and over fished. I'll Try the sunrise one of these days, I don't know what i'll catch,  Maybe it's like in the Simpsons with those Three eyed fish.    As for the rum river, I can't wait to fish that. I'll wait for a nice cold front when all those small mouth start to eat everything in site, They need the fat for winter. I'll make sure to tell you how it goes.
