I've seen various output freq. in HD mode on my DTC-100. My DWIN currently as about 4 different setups depending what mood the DTC-100 decides to be in. It is a PITA to converge and maintain these different setups. Maybe your scaler or projector got confused by this freq. difference.
I have a DTC-100. One of the "bugs" in the machine is that it loses the aspect ratio and black/grey bar settings if it loses power. This is sort of odd since other settings are saved in RAM that doesn't need power.
I know this because I have one and have unplugged it several times.
Given that you had both the aspect ratio problem and black/grey bar problem at the same time, I am guessing that you lost power to the DTC-100 at some point that you didn't realize.
I have had RCA unit about three months. My video display is a Seleco
500 unit with DVDO line doubler for non-HDTV. Sunday I had watched a DVD and switched to HDTV via Pronto macro and when picture appeared
instead of 16x9 it was about the same size as a 2:35 with gray bars filling the top and bottom to rastor's. I didn't change settings and when checking both the projector and STB they are where they were initially. Any suggestions?? Thanks a lot, and this forum has the best
HDTV info of anyone. I was going to unplug units last night when I got home (to re-set) but didn't have to as storms had knocked out power,
Thank all of you for responding!!! Yes the power did go off and I went back in and reset to 16x9. I was not aware it had happened, and the first time through checking settings missed the aspect for HD. Thanks again for the assistance. Had an e-mail from local CBS engineer Mon. saying Network lost HD satellite feed but had it back up Tues....
BTW those were the settings my wife suggested that I check. Boy I will
never live this down!!
