Directv
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 4 months ago

Please try the steps below via DirecTv and let me know what happens.

Remove the black bars on the sides of the TV display
When you watch standard-definition programming in widescreen mode on a widescreen HDTV, black bars appear on the sides of the picture. You can remove the bars by adjusting your TV settings to fit the image to your TV.

  1. Press ENTER on your remote to view the current zoom setting on your screen.
  2. Press ENTER repeatedly until you reach the zoom setting you want.
    • Normal displays the normal image.
    • Zoom 1 to 3 increases the zoom.
    • Stretch expands the image to fill the screen (may cause distortion of picture).

It is not a wide screen tv.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No change.
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 4 months ago

That's fine. What I posted were the steps to change the picture size using DirecTv's remote. So were you able to get to the various screen sizes as they indicate above?
