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.

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.
