I recently replaced our bedroom TV with a Vizio 32 inch model. It was rated higher than most of the others and seemed good for the price. Setup was easy, and resolution was great. However... No matter how I set the aspect ratio, it still looks distorted. Either the people on screen look 4 feet tall or too much is cut off. My wife collects older TV shows on DVD. The TV can't figure out what to do with these 4:3 TV shows. Letterbox would be fine. Even 16:9 HD content seems stretched or compressed, no matter which built-in aspect ratio we try. By comparison, our Samsung in the den adapts between formats, and never looks distorted. Any suggestions (other than the obvious ditch the Vizio)?
I have a 32" Vizio and don't have issues. D32x-D1 is its model number.
1 (855) 833-3221 They do have fairly good support. You may have purchased a fruit instead of an electronic device.
From a Blu-Ray/DVD player via HDMI cable.
And the Samsung in the den works fine with that DVD player with the same HDMI cable?
I see you say it does but you didn't specify if you were using the same hardware with both TVs.
We're using Samsung Blu-Ray players with HDMI cable in both rooms. The Blu-Ray player in the bedroom used to be hooked up in the den. It did work with the Samsung TV previously. Sounds like I should look at the Blu-Ray player's settings?
