Picture Size/Aspect Ratio - TV - Aspect Ratio

In general, an aspect ratio of 16:9 (wide-screen) will suit most situations. If using your TV as a monitor for a PC, you may find better results using Just Scan.

Some people may prefer to use Zoom or Cinema Zoom instead because these options do not strech the image. However, using either of these modes will result in part of the picture not being displayed.

Continue below to find out how to access and change the aspect ratio on your TV.
