Default New DTV Customer question

Thanks in advance guys. Just got Direct Tv installed and I love it! However, the picture on my smaller 13" lcd tv in the kitchen looks very squeezed. Everyone looks tall and skinny on it. Is there a setting I can change in the settings?

Try changing the screen size from 16:9 to 4:3. I don't think it will change it on your main tv.

Are you trying to drive two TVs off a single receiver? If your main TV is 16:9, you have to set 16:9 on the box (so leevitalone's suggestion won't work). If the TV kitchen TV has its own DirectV box, then leevitalone is correct.
If there are two TVs, then what you are seeing is the 16:9 picture squeezed into a 4:3 frame. The only way to change this is via controls on the TV, if you have them available.
