I watched most of the first Outer Limits episode today. The aspect ratio does not look exactly right. Is there a problem with that show?

First episode of Electric Dreams, was on the dark side, on the other hand it's a sunny day.

No problem. 4:3 ratio.





Spark FibreMAX using Mikrotik CCR1009-8G-1S-1S+. UAP, UAP AC Pro, UAP AC Pro Mesh, Apple TV 4, Apple TV 4K, iPad Air 1, iPhone 6s, VodaTV Gen 2. If it doesn't move then it's data cabled.

That makes sense. Something in my set must be set to autozoom to 16:9.

My TV settings look ok. 4:3 TV programs like America's Funniest Home Videos are correct ratio.

I tried a fixed 4:3 setting. That made no difference to outer limits. The TV picture properties say 16:9 when outer limits is playing. I looked for some other older shows for comparison. Matuku also looks a bit odd for different reasons.

Switched over to Netflix and checked the first episode of Fresh Prince. That displays automatically in 4:3 unaltered no problems.

Outer Limits on Lightbox looks zoomed and stretched at the same time.

Samsung UA32K5500AS. Tizen 2016.

Btw I have wondered if there is some way to cold boot it without a reset. I usually specifically exit out of each app.
