The problem I am running into when watching tv or movies on standard definition the picture will not fill the entire screen but when I switch to HD the picture takes up the whole screen. Is this common or is there a setting to correct it? Here is an example:Untitled

If this is happening with your cable/sat box, it is normal. Mine does the same thing. If I tune into an SD broadcast, I get black bars--if I tune into the same channel but with the HD broadcast (so 653 instead of 53 on my cable box), then the image fills the screen entirely.
If it's happening with discs, then the discs are likely non-anamorphic or 4:3 DVDs (I have a player that windowboxes 4:3 content on DVD or from Netflix no matter what I try, while another DVD player will give me a pillarbox for 4:3 content).
