Aspect Ratio Question h10-250
Posted 08 August 2004 - 03:01 PM
I initially set my aspect ration up as 16:9, but when I go to sd programs and want to stretch the picture on my panny ed 42" it wont let me. now if i go back and set the h10-250 to 4:3 then it will stretch. The question is, do i need to set my aspect ratio when i switch between hd programming that fills the screen and sd programming or can i just leave it at 4:3. It seems that the pic looks fine on hd when i leave it at 4:3. It just is a big hassle to change the setting each time....unless there is an easier way with fewer keystrokes??? thanks

So now I have the HD-TiVo set to output 4x3 and this is working great. For some reason (that I like) when you select 1080i as the output, the HD-TiVo will send 16x9 to the set. When you select 480p, it sends 4x3. On the Hitachi, you can set the aspect ratio based on input. So for 1080i, I use normal as the default. For 480p, I use expanded. Expanded is a modified stretch which stretches the picture more at the sides to get the picture to fill the screen. The picture is then partially stretched top to bottom so the people do not look totally fat. You sometimes lose the top and bottom banners, but if the picture can look pretty good.

It would be nice if the HR10-250 allowed a better solution. Of course it would also be nice if the Panny offered a better solution. My lowly SA3250HD outputs in multiple resolutions, depending on the transmission, providing a lot of flexibility.
