Hi, have a Magnovox DVR MDR533h/F7, when I load a DVD that was made in 5.4 my TV shows it in wide or stretched format and it looks bad. My TV will only stretch a 5.4 like an old show to a 16.9 but it wont do it the other way.
I really think its a setting on the DVR but I can't find what to do? some DVD player have certain ways to set things up but on my DVR/DVD player I can't find anything.
All the channels on the tuner of the DVR display the same way the TV does except for one of the sub channels, 56.3, kind of strange.
I don't think there is anything I can do with my aspect ratio while watching the older DVD's but does anyone have a suggestion?
I bought this product mainly for recording newer TV show's and am very happy with it.
The DVD part of it is a bonus but I never really thought much about it since it kind of loads the discs slow.
Thanks for any help.
For details, here's the help file on aspect, but you can probably get the right combination of settings between your Mag and your TV.
(Huddler has to "play" with complex links for awhile, so be patient until the page resolves on its own... don't try scrolling before that.)
The Mag has a Video > TV Aspect that changes what aspect the Mag sees and records, and your TV has aspect settings that you can coordinate with your Mag and its recordings.
Also the DVR seems to want to stretch some of the old TV shows so I will try this out next time.
Thank you very much for helping out.
