Why do I get black space on the sides of the TV screen when the picture should cover the whole screen?

  • If you are using an HDMI input cable, but don’tĀ have HD service try using a component cableĀ instead.
  • Set the set-top box and TV to 16:9 full screen and HD resolution.
    • The set-top box settings can be found by pressing Menu on the remote. The default password is 1111. Go to Settings > Hardware Settings to make appropriate changes.
  • Some stations, such as ESPN and Big 10 Network, broadcast their HD signal with specific settings that MHTC has no control over.
