"Aspect Ratio" refers to the ratio between the horizontal (width) measurement and the vertical (height) measurement of the screen. The two aspect ratios used are 4:3 and 16:9. That is, (4) units wide by (3) units high, and (16) units wide by (9) units high respectively. The 16:9 aspect ratio is the standard for HDTVs because significantly more information can be displayed on the screen.

36. I connected my GTPL KCBPL HD receiver and my high-definition television, and I still cannot get any picture when tuned to HD channels.

Make sure you have tuned to an HD channel that you subscribe to. Ensure that the connections are correct. Make sure that your high-definition television is using HDMI or component inputs.

37. I am tuned to an HD channel, however the picture is not displayed in full screen.

Not all programs are broadcast in high-definition and therefore programs will not always be full screen. Not every show currently broadcast by an HD network is in HD format. If you are getting a picture on the HD channel, you can assume that your equipment is functioning properly. You may want to check the settings on your HDTV set (consult your HDTV user manual).

38. I connected my GTPL KCBPL HD cable box to my high-definition television, and although I am getting a clear picture, the colors are not right.

If using a component video cable, ensure that the cables are connected correctly (i.e. Y is connected to Y, Pb is connected to Pb, and Pr is connected to Pr). Crossing these cables will mix up the picture colors. If using an HDMI connection, check your TV settings.
