Setting Image View

Image View modifies the aspect ratio of the TV image by stretching, zooming or adding gray bars. Since many TVs disable their aspect ratio controls when connected with HDMI, Image View lets you make sure the image fits properly on your TV screen.

To select an Image View setting:

Before you begin

To set Image View:
  1. The accessory VS-2 video enhancer must connect the system console to the TV via HDMI
  2. The system Widescreen TV setting must be Yes. For more info, see Using the Widescreen TV setting
  3. If the system Video resolution setting is Fixed, the connected device needs to send a resolution of 720p or greater. For more info, see Setting video resolution
Note: Each HDMI video source can have a separate Image View setting.

Setting Image View from the remote control

Press the Library button (above the Settings button) repeatedly to scroll though the available settings.

Note: If your remote control is programmed to control your TV, the Library button might change the TV aspect ratio rather than the Image View setting. This will happen if TV Control setting in the system menu is set to TV. In this case, change Image View from the system menu using the instructions below.
