General Setup Page
TV Display
The shape of the television or monitor may not match the shape of the movie frame. To avoid distortion on older televisions, you may need to change the way in which the image is displayed. Televisions use a 4:3 aspect ratio; high-definition televisions use 16:9 aspect ratio
(as do movies).
Note:
You may need to read your television’s manual
in conjunction with this section in order to
achieve the best results. Some discs do not
allow the aspect ratio to be changed and you will
therefore have to change the aspect ratio on the
TV.
Make this setting while playback is stopped; you
