Hi

I own the Pani TH-42PWD5

I just got hoocked up with HD TV Comcast Cable 5100 Motorola V5.2


First off I bought this TV in June 2003

I am very happy with it no ichues att all to speak of.


The Digital Channels are great wow very nice picture.

HD Channels Breathtaking :)


OK now my Question:

Aspect retio

Some channel it locks me out.

Some channels i can change the Aspect.

The channels i can't are in 4-3 and wont go to just or any other retio.

Some come in full screen and can't change it either.But that no big deal that is what i want anyways.


Is there a way to change it?

I know some broadcast come 4-3 ratio but I was always able to change it.Now on thos channels it just locks me out and wont do anything.

Much HD material these days is upconverted 4:3 broadcast with the sidebars. Because they are sent as 720p or 1080i HD signals, the plasma locks out aspect changes because it "seees" an HD signal.


This is normal and there is no problem with your plasma.


The workaround when viewing upconverted 4:3 is to use the STBs composite or S-Video out. These 480i signals will allow you to change aspect. The drawback is that the STB is now using two of the plasma's inputs.
