Optimal Picture Quality for your LG TV
We'd like to deliver the best picture quality for everything you watch right out of the box, but different picture settings work better for different types of entertainment. Your best settings for a dark Hollywood horror flick probably aren't the best for Sunday football. We know you bought your TV to get a great picture; the tips below can make that happen.
FINDING THE RIGHT ASPECT RATIO
If you're wondering what the Aspect Ratio is, you're not alone.
To put it simply, older televisions used a boxy format (the 4:3
Aspect Ratio). Because of that, older programs were
formatted to fit that size, and current, non-HD programming
still does. Newer, HD programming is best enjoyed in a
letterbox format that's more like what you see in the movies
(the 16:9 Aspect Ratio).
To avoid distortion, it is best to use the Aspect Ratio that
corresponds to the type of entertainment you are enjoying.
When should I adjust
the Aspect Ratio?
Most of what you'll be watching will likely
be in HD, but some TV broadcasts are still
in standard definition (SD). HD is viewed
in the 16:9 ratio, but you may notice a
broadcast showing up with two black
columns to either side. This likely means
it is an SD broadcast. If this is the case,
you should adjust the Aspect Ratio to 4:3
in order to get the best possible picture.
How do I adjust the
Simple. Just select MENU and then PICTURE
on your remote. Then select ASPECT RATIO.
From here, just choose which one is ideal for
your entertainment and select ENTER.
