Just purchased a new Vizio 47" sv470xvt (120hz) for my parents which is connected to a cablevision HD box. When I set the cablebox to 480 stretch, 720 or 1080i the picture does not fill the screen (black bars on left and right) and does not appear to be in HD. The only time the picture fils the screen is when I set the cablebox to 480 std. We watched a HD movie last night (88 minutes) via pay per view and the TV made the film look like it was shot on a home video camera - very unusual. This is my 3rd Vizio LCD and I have never experienced a problem like this before. Is it possible that the chip in the tv is simply broken?
