Need TV with good auto scaling for various signals
I'm looking for a 55 to 60 inch TV hopefully under $1000 (preferably less) that does a good job auto-scaling inputs to fill the screen -- unfortunately 65 inch sets will not fit in our entertainment center.
Our Samsung 61 inch DLP set failed unexpectedly after many years of service – we purchased a 58 inch Samsung, UN58MU6100F… at Best Buy to replace it.
The problem we're having is that the set won't scale various input signals to full screen automatically. Yes, we did the 'Fit to Screen' dance getting it to show up and tried all the options we could think of on our major sources, a DirecTV box (both SD and HD content), a Sony BluRay player (DVD, BluRay, and streaming from local network from YouTube video to 4K), and an Amazon FIreTV (various formats), and on our receiver, a Yamaha RX-V679, and the bottom line is that we can figure out a sizing solution for each format but then when we change signals the sizing is all wrong. Readjusting picture size manually every time signal format changes is not an option. All of our 5 sources are connected to HDMI inputs on the Yamaha and the TV is fed from the 679's Monitor Out, and changing that setup is not an option either.
Our Samsung DLP set had no problem in this setup auto-scaling various input signals to full screen.
I have about 10 days left to find an alternative within the Best Buy return window. Thanks for any help you can provide!
