Oversized picture on television

Wed Aug 16, 2017 12:24 pm

Please forgive me if this has been asked before, I tried looking in forum discussion and couldn't find an answer.  All of a sudden the picture on my television has become oversized while using my Roku Premier.  I looked in the settings but found no place to adjust screen.  Can anyone help me please?  Thank you

Does your TV have any sort of button that could do this?  Most TVs have an option that switches from like "Full", "Stretch", etc.  That's usually the culprit.

No, just a regular 32 inch Vizio with HMDI attached to Roku box.  It worked fine for as long as I had it, around 4 months, then the picture on the television screen became larger.  It's very frustrating viewing a channel, but I'll look closely on my TV's remote.  I just thought the Roku remote had a setting for it.  Thanks

Most TVs nowadays have a screen setting to zoom or otherwise change the display aspect ratio. It sounds suspiciously like you might have inadvertently changed the setting. And no, there is no such setting on any Roku player.

But the screen is only oversized when I watch television shows from my Roku.  When I'm not using Roku my television viewing is just fine.  I'll try again.  Thank you!

That setting could well be only on a per input basis. That is the way many televisions are set up now days.

I have seen this as well but only on the latest software 7.7. Reboot your device and it should clear if it does not reboot the TV as well.

you want to unplug the tv from the wall for a couple of minutes.

I don't know how it happened but I somehow had gone into Settings, changed the Display Type from 720p  HD TV to 1080p HD TV. Which made it larger.  With a little figuring out, I changed it to right setting of 720p HD TV.  Problem solved.  Thanks again for everyone's input.  I am truly appreciative.

Had the same problem on a 32" Vizio using a Roku stick. My Roku settings had also inexplicably been set to 1080p. Changing it to 720p fixed the problem as well. Thank you!
