Hello, I'm a total newbie, so please pardon if my questions sound ignorant... I just hooked up my 609 barely 4 hours ago, but I ran into a strange problem -- when I first connected the composite input into the cable/sat port, it automatically stretched the picture into full 16:9 wide screen (even though I couldn't see much improvement in the upscaling quality, it was displaying at 1080p.) However, after making some cable adjustments by unplugging the said cable and re-plugging the connectors, the output to the TV was stuck on 4:3 ratio, even though the monitor indicated the signal was 1080p. I went into the picture adjustment section of the menu, and had to switch the setting from "Auto" to "Full" in order to stretch out the picture.
Later, I went ahead and power-cycled the 609 & tested the Picture Adjust setting again, and the problem seemed to have gone away (the composite signal was displaying at 16:9 even at Auto mode, as it was supposed to.) But I am now wondering if the video processor is somewhat faulty? Has anyone experienced similar issues?
And on a side note, how much improvement am I supposed to expect from the Marvell Qdeo chip (applying to composite signals)?
