How to Adjust a Toshiba Screen Width

By AndreaB

With the onset of high-definition television broadcasting, you may have to adjust your television's screen. Most programs are broadcast in 4:3 aspect ratio, which used to be the standard. The standard format of HDTV, non-digital TV and analog wide screen television is a 16:9 aspect ratio. Some HD signals do not allow picture sizes other than 4:3 and Full. Although your Toshiba TV may offer other screen width options, they may not be usable with your digital signal.
