My VO37L model of VIZIO TV screen image as cabled to Shaw Cable

My VO37L model of VIZIO TV screen image as cabled to Shaw Cable HD in Vancouver cannot stay permanently at ZOOM on non HD TV stations. My PVR, via my Shaw Remote, has a ZOOM button to use to fill the screen, but as soon as I change channels it goes back to 4.1 instead of ASPECT ratio 16.1 full screen, on non-HD channels.

After connecting my new Toshiba DVR630KC DVD video recorder to my Sharp Aquos LC26GA5U/LC32GA5U television, I can screen DVD's and VHS's, but cannot see the TV programs. I can only capture the sound. Shouldn't these devices be compatible? Thanks in advance.
