Aspect Ratio switch from a SD channel to HD?
Advertisement
#1
Hi

I am thinking of getting a Toshiba LED TV & Videocon D2H HD. I have a query.
When switching from watching a SD channel to HD channel will the TV automatically
switch from 4:3 to 16:9 ratio?

Thanks for your help.
Andy.

In my opinion, even if aspect ratio is not changing automatically, one can adjust the setting easily or may be the technician who come to install your HD STB will do the needful.

This depends on the set top box rather than the TV. It's possible to change the aspect ratio in the TV settings but that would be cumbersome to do everytime. Most HD boxes have an option to display the video as it's received ie 4:3 and 16:9 will be displayed in their natural ratios.

I sure do hope that is the case, as I have seen lots of people watching SD channels in 16:9 ratio by incorrectly adjusting the AR in the TV.

Also, if any particular TV demands that one manually switch between the SD & HD ratio for corresponding channels, that TV needs to be out of consideration. Smile

Isn't there anyone here who has Videocon HD & thus can shed some light over this issue?
