    Picture doesnt fit the screen

    Hello All,

    I have a 40 Sony TV and DirectTV HR 21... I have been running on 1080i format and everything has been ok for last 7 month... the last 2 days I'm having this issue with some HD channels that I dont see full picture.. i.e with watching sport game, I barely see the score and results on top and bottom...

    Again, only some HD channels are like that and they use to be ok... I have tried to change the format by pressing FORMAT botton on the remote and it's ok when it's 480i/p. but I know it was ok before on 1080i...



    I even tried to set the TV picture mode to FULL, Wide.. still the same...

    what could be the issue? could the HD converter be an issue? could it be the LNB?

    Thanks all

    It does sound like your TV is set to crop format. Remember, both the DVR and the TV have formats that can be changed. You need to find the combination for your equipment.
