Viewing HD footage on my old TV monitor looks squeezed or elongated.

I have two monitors to view video footage I shoot in HD with my
Sony HVR -Z7u. One is an old color TV and the other a Visio HD TV. In the past the HD footage would show up on my old monitor letter boxed, with a little bit of black on the top and bottom of the screen. Lately the HD video on my old monitor looks squeezed and it's full screen. What changed! I do not want people viewing squeezed video on there old TVs.

Thanks

This could be caused by a software or hardware setting. Describe your workflow, computer setup, software, how you get signal to your monitors, etc. Then folks will be able to help you out.

How are you connecting to the old TV?

Without knowing nobody can say.
