Hello,

I am having trouble displaying correctly an anamorphic image from my DVD player. I can't seem to reduce the V size enough (using RGB size on my Sony 1271). Is anyone else displaying an anamorphic signal correctly and how did you do it...

I can size up the correct aspect ratio if I make my DVD player output a 4:3 letterboxed, but I would prefer to have it output 16:9 and do the squeezing in the PJ setup...

thanks for any suggestion

Have you got horizontal SIZE and horizontal RGB SIZE maxed out as well? My old 1251 would do anamorphic no worries, when the horizontal sizes were at max.

Yeah, you need to spread the horizontal out first. I'm running 80x45 with 242 on horizontal, 7 on vertical (1251). Hope that helps.

I used to have a 1271 and I could never shrink the image vertically enough to be a true 16x9. This is true with any 1271 and I believe any 12x pj. You either need to blank it or optionally use an HTPC for dvd/hdtv playback. With the HTPC, you have more control over the picture size. You might find more on this issue in the archives. Good luck

bchamber,


It's true that sometimes a HTPC can help you stretch the horizontal size with porch settings but.. there is a pot labeled rv104 that lets you expand the horizontal raster right out to the edges of the tube and (though you wouldn't want to) beyond.


My 1271 is set for true 16:9 shape and the vertical size is still 19.

I never messed with an rv104 pot, but I do use the VB50 at 800x600, so I'm probably not a good gauge on whether or not the 12xx's can do 16x9 or not. I never tried it the short time I was using S-video, and it just never occurred to me that I shouldn't be able to get 16x9 because at the 800x600 I can. Sorry I didn't think about the fact I was using a "scaler."
