Default New 4k tv. Tv2 has black bars on top & bottom

I just bought a new Vizio 4k tv for my bedroom. I currently have a Dish 722k receiver. One receiver runs two different televisions. My HD channels on tv2 now have black bars at the top and bottom of the screen. Tv2 is currently connected to the TV by coax cable. My previous flat screen tv did not have this issue with the black bars. When I go to Netflix or Hulu the picture is perfect and full screen. I do not want to "stretch" the picture to fit the screen becuase then any writing on the tv is not readable.

This is normal for the VIP722K to do this on the coaxial output as it is not an HD picture but is in SD format.

To get an HD picture on the second TV you will have to upgrade to a Hopper/Joey system, or get a second VIP722K for that TV.

But if you do not use the dual viewing function and have the same picture on both TV's then a HDMI splitter can be used, you will also need to run a HDMI cable to the other TV, if this is over 25 feet then a HDMI to CAT 5/6 adapter can be used, but this takes 2 CAT5/6 cables.
