My mom just went to the HD side of things. And she doesen't like the bars on the side of tv shows that aren't broadcasted in HD. She tried going into her setings on her tv but when she blows up the picture her guide on direc tv goes a little off the screen. Is there a setting in the hr21-700 that allows her to fill the whole screen without losing any of the picture. Thanks

Yep - just press the format button on the top left of the screen. It will distort the image, by making everyone look moon-faced. It adds no additional information to the picture, and reduces sharpness (and why go HD if not for increased sharpness) by spreading the pixels further apart. She's better off not knowing the answer.

My daughter always reformats the screen to stretch o vision after I go to bed when she visits, it was sweet revenge to reset her tv to pillar box when staying with her last weekend.
