How to Make a Vizio to Screen Wider

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.

Step

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

Step

Select the wrench icon.

Step

Select "Wide."

Step

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

Step

Press the "Last" button to exit.
