Menu is larger than my screen

Mon Jul 13, 2015 11:53 am

The Roku display (the content description or menu) is larger than my TV screen. Most of the left side of the menu is out my my viewing range. It's like watching a 16:9 movie on a 4:3 TV.

I know it is a display problem, but I cannot find a place to fix it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Which Roku? And how are you connecting the Roku to your TV? HDMI?

Many TVs have a ZOOM (or something similar) setting that can affect that. Mine, for instance, has three different settings. A previous TV had 4. Some made a difference, some didn't.

Have you tried unplugging and plugging the hdmi cable back in?
unplugged the roku-3 power and plugged it back in?
What video mode do you have the roku-3 in? And what kind of TV is attached to it? Is there an AVR there as well?
Do you retrieve the devid from the settings/system/about page and provide it? What firmware release are you on?

I've sent a PM to Newsman to get more information.
Is anyone else with a Roku-3 having similar issues and can provide additional information regarding your setup?
thanks

Ive had my roku express for about 2 months almost. My screen went big on me in the middle of watching a show. I saw the screen act like it was about to buffer and then noticed it looked different and now everything is out of frame. Can not find a fix.
