Hello,
The following has me completed baffled.

I have three different LCD HDTV's hooked up to Bll Expressvu and I get a different picture on each TV. let me explain:

TV 1 - 2010 (1080) 40" Sony Bravia, hooked up to a new HD Bell receiver routed through a new sony home theatre system using all HDMI cables. The SD channels are always 4:3 aspect ration, this will only change if I put it on wide zoom. The HD channels are permantly on wide zoom even though it indicated normal picture (the outside edges are cut off) I have played with the settings endlessly on both the received endlessly with no solution.

TV 2 - 2010 37" Panasonic Vierra (1080) hooked up directly to a new Bell HD receiver using video cables. The SD channels look fine but the HD channels are fine wide wise but there are black lines at the top and bottom. Try to resolve this with no solution. Again black lines on top and bottom dissapper on wide zoom but picture edges are cut off.

TV 3 - Older 42 Visio HDTV (720) hooked up to a new Bell HD PVR with HDMI cables. Both HD and SD pictures are perfect. HD covers the entire screen without cutting off any of it, the SD cover the whole screen.

Any idea how to get my Sony and Pansonic to work like my visio? HELP!

Thanks everyone. I will try some of your sugestions. My HD Bell Receivers are on all TV's and set to 16:9. All my TV's are 16:9 HDTV's.

I am aware of aspect ratio's and the differences but I will check out the web site. I don't mind my SD 4:3 channels being distorted on the 16:9 screen. I just don't know why my vizio automatically makes the SD 4:3 fit the 16:9 screen without having to do anything and the HD automatically fits the 16:9 screen prefectly (sides not cut off) without having to adjust things. I use the station logos as a judge and that is how i realized by HD channels on my Bravia are being cut off on the sides.

The HD channels on my Panasonic are being cut off on the top and bottom which I don't understand. It is a 16:9 screen and my HD channels should fit the 16:9 screen without cuttting off the top and bottom.

I may have to take a trip down to the local store and ask as well.
