Screen shrinkage following use of HDMI cable


Standard Member

I have dragged myself into this century by discarding my scart cable and replacing it with an HDMI cable. Trouble is, my TV picture shrinks on occasion (though setting showing display ratio as 'FULL')?

Is there a straight-forward explanation for this?

Thanks, :)

You don't mention what make and model TV it is but it could be that its trying to detect the type of signal (widescreen, 4:3 etc) and will attempt to switch the picture into the most appropriate aspect mode. You can usually turn this off in the TV's setup options.
