supported by the TV. The checklist may be
modified manually after the DCX3200 performs
the automatic configuration.
3. While this checklist provides the ability to
customize the Native mode experience when
using the DCX3200, it can also result in a loss of
video if the checklist is modified without a clear
understanding of the video formats supported by
the TV. These settings should only be modified

information about stretching 4:3 video).
•
If the DCX3200 is connected to a wide

set to 16:9 in the User Settings menu.
Many HD programs are broadcast in pillar-box
format with black bars to the left and right of the
picture. These programs are broadcast in 16:9 HD
formats even though the video is not 16:9.
There are
black bars
above and

picture
All 4:3 HDTVs display HD programs in letterbox
format (black bars above and below the picture)
because of the shape of the display screen.
•
Turn on the 4:3 OVERRIDE feature in
the User Settings menu. This enables
most standard screen TVs to display a
full screen picture when the DCX3200
is tuned to a 4:3 program.
•
Set the TV TYPE to 4:3 Pan-Scan. This
enables the DCX3200 to remove the
black bars above and below the picture
when possible.
Some SD programs are broadcast in the letterbox
format with black bars above and below the
picture. Some widescreen TVs offer a zoom
feature that may be able to remove the black bars
(see your TV manual for information about
zooming 4:3 video).
44
7 TROUBLESHOOTING
Problem
Possible Solution
There are
black bars on
all four sides
of the picture
This may occur on a 4:3 TV if the 4:3 OVERRIDE
setting is OFF. To set 4:3 SD programming to fill
the screen, depending on the capabilities of the
TV, set 4:3 OVERRIDE to 480i or 480p.
This may occur on a 16:9 TV if the active video for
an SD broadcast is in letterbox format. To
confirm, wait for a commercial or look for a
graphic, such as a network logo. If the
commercial fills the screen from top to bottom, or
the graphic appears below the active video, the
program is being letterboxed by the broadcaster.
You can minimize this by activating the zoom
feature on the TV.
A broadcaster may include black bars on either
side of a wide screen broadcast. This is called a
“hybrid” aspect ratio and results in a black border
surrounding the video on a 4:3 TV. Because this is
part of the broadcast, the DCX3200 cannot
correct the video. You may be able to minimize
the border using the zoom feature on the TV.
Colors do not
appear
correctly
Be sure to match up each signal to the same
YPbPr connection on the TV, otherwise the colors
will not appear correctly on your TV.
