How to Make a Vizio to Screen Wider

By Lindsay Howell

Before the high-definition era, TV shows used a 4-by-3 resolution. New TVs, such as the ones made by Vizio, and high-definition programs are in the 16-by-9 resolution, which is much wider than the 4-by-3 resolution. In the options on a Vizio TV, you can upscale a 4-by-3 TV to fill your 16-by-9 screen.

Things You'll Need

  • Vizio TV remote

Step 1

Turn on your Vizio TV with the remote and press the "Menu" button.

Step 2

Select the wrench icon.

Step 3

Select "Wide."

Step 4

Select "Panoramic." The aspect ratio of the video will be kept, but it will be stretched to fit the entire screen.

Step 5

Press the "Last" button to exit.
