Aspect Ratio

You may set the display aspect ratio. The Aspect Ratio 4:3 may be enabled only when the resolution is set to SD (480I/P, 576I). For other resolutions, the Aspect Ratio should be set to 16:9.

TV Under Scan

Generally TVs are designed to overscan input signals to display. This means that a part of the input image is cut off and becomes invisible to the user. The over scan ratio varies by TV. You may compensate for over scan by turning on under scan. Increase the under scan percentage until the entire image is displayed on your TV. You may set under scan up to 20% of the valid frame.

NOTE:
Regardless of the under scan setting, the game application must meet the safety frame requirement according to the guideline, and lay out important information to fit within the frame.

You may set the TV sound format. There are 3 settings: MONO, STEREO, and SURROUND.

TV Audio out

You may set the TV audio output. There are 3 settings: HDMI, HDMI+RCA, and RCA. This setting is available only when video output is set to HDMI.
