Plasma tv aspect ratio is vertically stretched
  

Hi,
I have LG Plasma TV connected to my computer as a secondary monitor. I use it as entertainment system. Most of the time the aspect ratio is stretched vertically. Can anyone help me to a adjust it?


All suggestions are welcome.

If you are using home theater as entertain main system, the Scaler does not do vertical stretching. The only control you have over the aspect ratio with this unit is to fill the screen, maintain aspect ratio or overscan/underscan. You can use the overscan feature, to set it as normal.

Re: Plasma tv aspect ratio is vertically stretched

The dimension is width and height of video which is measured in pixels. The aspect ratio of a video is the ratio of the video's width to the video's height. Video with dimensions of 320 x 240 pixels has an aspect ratio of 4:3. Video that is 640 x 480 also has an aspect ratio of 4:3. Two video clips can have totally different sizes but the same aspect ratio. High-Definition Television and Wide-Screen Monitors adopt 16:9 aspect ratio.

You can get overscan/underscan controls under the TOPL and BOTR features in the SIZE menu. Each aspect ratio has it's won set of overscan/underscan controls. Set each one individually and then save to the individual aspect ratio and not to all aspects.
