After having to exchange my contour 2 recording box, a lot of commercials and moves are no longer showing full screen like they used to. Is cox no longer sending a 1080p signal which I have it set to? I have changed nothing on Sony TV (would not think a new Contour box would do anything with TV settings) and the device setting on Cox is set to default the set up selected as 1080p.
Try enabling the Zoom option beneath your resolution setting.
In the section where you select your resolution? the Zoom has two options Full and None..The Full setting is a bit blurry so None is clearer. I tried Zoom set to Full and alas HBO still panoramic .
We were afraid of that..so what is the purpose of having a TV set to 720 which is very old quality?
Will this same thing happen on an new OLED set?
You may still have SD channels in your Program for your market. If you click the Guide button and then click it again, there will be View options. I'd explore with the HD Channels as opposed to All Channels. With HD Channels selected, test for the 4:3 ratio.
nope--still not full screen..very annoying as the old box never did this
