To change the way that the picture shows on your TV, like widescreen and output format, you’ll need to adjust the display format.

  1. Press Home on the remote
  2. Select Help & Settings
  3. Choose Settings
  4. Select Video Output

You can now adjust different settings for your TV.

The settings you can change are:

Aspect Correction Mode
This lets you adjust the way the TV picture fits into your TV screen. It depends whether the picture is in 4:3 or 16:9 (Widescreen) format.

Your picture will fill the entire screen. Widescreen content will display normally. Content that’s 4:3 may look stretched, to fill the full screen.

Bars at the top and bottom, or left and right, of the screen are used to display a picture that’s not distorted. E.g. Widescreen content will display normally but 4:3 content might appear in bars to the left and right of the screen.

Widescreen content will display normally but 4:3 content might appear with the top and bottom cut off.

Letterbox colour
This setting allows you to choose which colour should be used when your box adds bars to the top and bottom or left and right of the picture. There are two options – grey or black. Changing the colour will only apply where the box has added the bars and not where they were added by the broadcaster – changing the colour can help to determine this.

Video Output 
FormatYour box receives signals in any of these possible formats – 2160p, 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 576i and 576p. Your V6 will automatically set the best video output format for your TV. You can also set the output format for your TV by going to the Video Output Format screen and selecting Auto Detect.

 The Video Output Format screen allows you to test and set the video output format manually. Select Test Formats and then follow the on-screen prompts to test which formats your television can display.The supported formats will be automatically selected in the list of available video formats
