Pix Shape Question - Sanyo DP46849
by perrier1 - 10/12/09 9:02 PM
I just got a Sanyo DP46849 and I cannot figure out the "pix shape" I am supposed to be using. I am using the HDMI input for a Blu-ray/DVD player (no TV/cable). The picture looks best in pix 6 or 7 (looks the same), but the manual says pix 6 or 7 are setup as pix 1-2 in PC mode and use of pix 6-7 in TV mode is not recommended.
The picture is distorted (pressed tight in pix 1 and stretched too tall in pix 2-5. A 1.85 to 1 movie will have no black bars at the bottom/top in pix 2-5, which it should since the TV is 1.77 to 1. Pix shapes 6 or 7, which are not recommend for TV mode, will have the slight bars.
Anyone else have this or another Sanyo? Can using this pix 6-7 damage the TV? What are the pix 1-7 settings? Which one should I be using?
(I have only been watching standard DVD's because I do not not have any blu-rays, yet.)
