How do I recover full screen view?
I'm not 100% certain on what you're referring to specifically, but if you want to set your TV to full screen, you can try the options within your TV's menu, or you can check the cable box user menu (provided you have a cable box with these menus) by pressing Power to turn it off, waiting 2 seconds then pressing Settings on the remote or Menu on the front of the cable box. You'll then see options for the ratio (16:9 vs 4:3), the resolution (480, 720, 1080), the 4:3 override option (for standard definition TV, can be set to Stretch the picture or leave it normal with black bars on the side).
Any other information you can give us about what you're trying to do will help us to help you.
I am wondering why at times when you are watching TV on different channels the screen will switch from full screen to seeing a picture with blackness around the sides? I have my TV setting to Full screen. I have tried resetting the video setting on the HD PVR and get the same thing happening. I have the DCX3510-M model.
I've noticed with many channels, such as National Geographic HD, the broadcaster will do this. And then the NatGeo channel icon will be in the black space in the bottom right.
