Step 1. Press the Menu button on your Magnavox remote. You will see a banner with a number of options. Use the up, down, left and right arrows on the remote control to scroll to Picture Settings or Picture/Sound Settings, then press the Select button on the remote control to activate it.
Press the format button to change the TV screen display option. You can choose between 16:9 or 4:3 signals or HDMI modes. If using an antenna, choose the aspect ratio closest to that of the local channels.
In general, on the device itself, go to the settings menu and look for options for Display. If you connect to a PC via HDMI, it should recognize that you are connected to a TV. In the display settings on your device, look for a setting called “Resolution” and select the resolution you want to use.
Fortunately, many TVs can automatically adjust the aspect ratio based on the feed they receive. Again, all TVs are different, but pay attention to the aspect ratio adjustments in your picture settings. Make sure it’s set to Auto Fit or Normal instead of Stretch, Full Screen, or Zoom.
Click Settings in the lower left corner of your screen. Select Image Settings. Click Image Size Settings. Open the drop-down menu and select 1080p.
In general, you need a TV larger than 42 inches to be able to tell 1080i from 1080p – and that also depends on how far away you sit. In general, for fast-moving images, 1080p offers excellent picture quality, which prevents the on-screen tearing that can occur with 1080i.
On a PC, click the Start menu, then click Settings and Display Settings. You can also right-click on a blank screen to access the settings menu. Depending on your operating system, choose either “Fit to screen” or “Resize text, apps, and other items”.
Answer. In general, the settings of the device connected to your TV should be set to the highest resolution your TV can accept (480, 720, 1080, 2160). If you have a widescreen TV, the aspect ratio of the device connected to the TV should be set to 16:9 if possible.
Depending on what you are watching, this problem can be caused by either the TV or the signal source (cable/satellite set-top box, DVD player or other device). Each of these devices may have a zoom/wide angle option or an aspect ratio control that adjusts the size of the image displayed on the screen.
You can use the “ASPECT” or “B” button on your Shaw Direct remote to stretch or zoom the image on your screen. Stretch expands the picture to better fit your HDTV’s 16×9 format. Zoom enlarges the entire image.
Right-click on the desktop and select Display Settings. Make sure you’ve selected the correct resolution. If the screen resolution of your TV and laptop is the same, leave it as is. Now click on the Scaling and Layout section and try changing the layout from 100% to 200% or whatever is available
PIP (Picture in Picture) is a feature that allows you to watch two programs at the same time. This means that you can watch a TV channel and a picture received from another external video source (e.g. DVD, set-top box, PC) at the same time.
