wideview without zooming

by rebs081 / February 1, 2009 5:08 AM PST

when watching a HD channel that is not in full screen width, how do you expand it to full screen width without zooming ? when I hit wideview it cuts off the bottom of the picture, like the news on the bottom they have school closings and or a scrolling weather or sports scores, it cuts these items off

Thanks for any help

When the incoming signal is in a 4:3 aspect ratio, you can't make that picture a wide picture without zooming. The native picture coming in might be able to be stretched, but that kind of processing has to be done with the cable/sat box, if that feature is available. Even then, your picture will be heavily distorted horizontally.
