How do you adjust the screen on a Quasar 27 inch television set where the beginning and end of sentences are not visible?

Adjusting your picture orientation on your HiDef television is a sort of complicated affair. Understanding dimension formats will help you to set the best screen setting for your television. All the old models of televisions that had a CRT (cathode ray tube) had a generally square shape to them, as opposed to rectangular. These traditional screen dimensions were referred as a 4:3 (ratio) dimension. Newer flat panel televisions and computer monitors are referred to as 16:9 (ratio) dimension because they have a wider width. When you go to the theatre, and watch a movie, the big screen is also in the 16:9 dimension. When the movie was converted from theatre size to television screen size, there were a couple different methods to compress a 16:9 to a 4:3. The oldest method was just to use a convex distortion lense that would squish the 16 dimension down to the 4 dimension (mathematically, 4:3 expanded would result in a 12:9 ratio, whereby you would have a difference of 4 - 2 increments on each side of black bars from the top to the bottom of the screen. A newer method of downconverting 16:9 to 4:3 was letterboxing. Letterboxing shows the full width of the 16:9, but then you have a residual black bar on the top and bottom of the screen which is most prevalent today. If you change your picture orientation on your television to letterbox, you will be able to see the full width of the picture, and then you can "autosize" stretch the vertical dimension to the full height of the screen. This results in a picture that uses all of your screens real estate, with the least amount of distortion.
