Some of the HD content I get comes in 4:3 mode for some reason so I was wondering about disabling jump in the service menu of my 36hs500.


1) Could someone comment if they have done so? specifically,


2) Can you activate the 16:9 squeeze in the service menu if you disable jump so that you can still squeeze the 16:9 hd material?


3) Does it throw off geometry to mess with this?


Thanks

JUMP turns the squeeze on and off (for 720p/1080i HD content only).

Can I still squeeze HD content using the 16x9 feature in the user menu if I disable jump?

JUMP is the service menu item which enables or disables the 16X9 squeeze. I believe when JUMP=1, 720p/1080i is displayed in a 16:9 letterbox on a 4:3 XBR. And when JUMP=0, 720p/1080i should be vertically expanded or uncompressed (whatever terminology you prefer) to fill the whole screen.

I think the question is that if Jump=0, can the regular menu be used to enable 16:9 compression without having to go back into the service menu?

If your HDTV receiver allows you to switch between 480p, 720p and 1080i, then perhaps you could use it (the receiver) to switch between 4:3 fullscreen and 16:9 letterbox by changing its output from 480p to 1080i, and leave JUMP alone.


Or maybe your receiver isn't set right to begin with? I think when most receivers are in Auto mode, they can detect whether the signal is 480p or 1080i and switch their output automatically. Could that be the problem?
