    55PFL6007T and Auto-Fill

    Hi everybody

    On my old Philips model, whenever watching something in 4:3 format, the auto-fill option would stretch the image, to get rid of the black side bars.

    On this model, it dosen't seem to do anything ? - what's the point of having this option if it dosen't work ?

    I know we are in 2012, but there is still a lot of 4:3 shows around, and it is kind of a downside when having a 55 inch TV, and then not being able to fill out the whole image.

    Am I doing something wrong ?

    Hi,

    many broadcaster add black bars to 4:3 content to create a 16:9 stream. Consequently, your TV receives a 16:9 video and you will have the black bars on the left/right.

    Well that sounds right, but still, how come my old Philips model was smarter than the new one ?
    The old one could stretch the image no matter what, I miss that.

    did you watch digital channels or analogue on your old TV?
