Okay thanks. Also I'm not available by phone- the website sends that offer automatically (without my consent). Please give me a minute to look up the box.

That's your wireless router. Your TV should be connected directly to a cable box. Who is your cable provider?

I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today.

Sorry to hear that you’re having trouble with this but I’ll do my best to help you out.

This problem with the picture size could be coming from either the tv OR the box

Grab the cable box remote and look for a button that says ZOOM, ASPECT, WIDE, RATIO, SIZE, FORMAT, * OR # etc

You may need to press this several times to cycle through the different options,

and you may have to make a similar adjustment on the tv as well, until you get them both to a desired setting

typically you'd want the cable box set on 16:9 or Wide

and you'd want the tv set on Normal or 16:9

It can take a bit of fiddling to get them both matched up, but you should have a button for this function on both the tv remote and on the box remote, and will have to use both

Let me know how it works,

thanks,

Nathan

I agree that if I had a more "advanced remote" I could do all those things such as zoom etc but it is a basic model .
