I just got the VMS1100 Box installed. The guide is not full screen.
The box that shows what is currently playing is a little off as well.
Chat does not help me
They are very unhelpful
I made sure it was 16:9 etc..
How old is your TV?
Is it possible that it is only 720 not 1080?
Or do you possibly have the TV zoomed in?
Thanks for the reply! TVS are all within 2 years old. All HD. It is happening on all 4 TVS. 3 of which are recently purchased.
It isnt just happening on that one TV. I have tried all the settings, 16:9 , HD, options etc..
Tried zoom and all that.
None of that solved the issue.
The top left screen which shows the current program is also not set up right. It is not in the right spot.
Hard to explain.
Connected to TV how. HDMI.
What video settings. 1080P,1080i, or 720P.
It is HDMi Cables yes. I have it on 1080I at the moment
But i have tried all of them just to see, and nothing has fixed it/
Can anybody help me
Have you tried getting the software to reload?
Note doing a cold init will lose a bunch of settings but not delete recordings or schedule.
To do a Cold init.
- Unplug the box. Wait about 20 seconds.
- Plug back in and immediately begin repeatedly pressing MENU on remote until you see the word "run" on the front display
- Using the down arrow button, go down until you see "COLD".
- Press Ok and the box goes through activation process, including downloading the current IMG software.
ps: forget to ask what sotware level. Mine is currently is
Build Number: 03.24.2
UI Version: 03.24.2(3248.1)
note serveral small upates have been only changing that hilighted number (3248.1)
Should I still do the steps you said?
I also get pixelated picture at times
But I habe done all basic steps that customer service has given me
So should I still do the cold or no?
If you can live with the loss of some of your settings (favorites list, etc) then it may be worth a try. If its software that didn't load correctly, this could fix it.
Not sure if you can post a copy of what your screen looks like.
ps: Remember we are just Peers here.
I am not sure how to post a picture of it.
I can try to explain it further.
On darker shows or just shows in general i notice pixelation and boxes in the background.
It is not that major but it still shows.
Than the guide is not full screen
It is cut off at parts
and the video on the top left showing what is currently playing is cut off.
i tried full guide, hd, 16:9, 1080 etc..
None of that worked.
Let me know what you think/.
