Change in Video Setting on the HD10-250
Posted 14 September 2004 - 05:43 AM
When I change from a HD channel to a SD channel do I have to manually change the video setting on the receiver from 1080 to 480?
My Sony HD300 does this automatically through a variable setting...........this is preferred so that SD stations viewed in 1080 aren't cut at the sides............

I don't want to stretch the picture...........I want to know if I have to manually change the video setting on the HD receiver from 480 to 1080 when switching back and forth from SD to HD channels.
If you watch an SD channel in 1080 format, then you can stretch the content to fill the 16x9 screen. If you change the video setting to 480, you don't have to do that.

BTW-I assume setting the HD Tivo to 4:3 instead of 16:9 simply stops the Tivo from adding black side bars to the SD pictures allowing the TV to provide a proper stretching of the picture. If anyone knows better I would appreciate any feedback.

I don't have to do this now with my Sony HD300.....I have a variable setting that picks the right format based on the signal.
