Hi there, I just want to clear up some confusion regarding the Picture Format Settings on my HD box. I am connected via HDMI, I have a few options in the menu for picture format. I was reading the "auto HD" guide and it says to set the picture format to "Upconvert -1", but I was told by a rogers rep when I got my TV to put it to "AUTO DVI/HDMI". Which one do I use??
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
Since the firmware updates, it has been recommended to use the "Fixed" setting. Many users are experiencing a stretched picture on SD channels using the "auto dvi/hdmi" setting. The "Fixed" setting will correct this problem. I can personally verify that from my own experience.
Ok, so what I did was go through and disable all other settings except 1080i. Then I set the picture format to fixed. So now all HD channels are displaying in 1080i, and SD channels remain in 4:3 format not stretched. This seems to work for now!
Thanks for your help everyone!
