Sounds like the settings are correct I also have the dish network system. Ok there are many different aspect ratios 4X3 which you would have black bars on either side, ok 16X 9 would fill entire screen but there are many other aspect ratios theat will give you black bars on top and bottom not to worry normal stewee
My friend has a Panasonic TH-42PX60U and recently ordered the Dish Network HD package. The problem is that all the HD channels have black bars on the bottom and top of the screen. The settings for the TV are full mode and the satellite is set to normal for hd. This seems extremely odd to me as HDTV is shot in 16:9, correct? Has anyone else run into this problem.
