I purchased a Sony PVM-8044q field monitor off of ebay to use with my 200. I go this monitor because everything that I could find about it said that it would display 16x9. Well I got it today and everything is squished vertically, meaning that while I am normally vertically challenged, on this monitor I could play for the NBA.
Does anyone own this model? Do you know how to switch it to do 16x9 correctly? I have seen photos of one showing 16:9 letterboxed and I guess that is what this one should do, but it isn't.
FWIW, the 200 is set to 720/24pn, cmpt out downconverts to 480i. Output aspect ratio is set to AUTO and cannot be changed. Also using the Cine V scene file.
Hi, on some 8044's there is a 16:9 provision but not all of them have it. If yours has it there will be a small slider switch on the back and it is labled 4:3 on the left and 16:9 on the right. From top to bottom it is about the middle. From side to side it is on the left beside the component inputs and just above the 120V power plug. Not all monitors have it so if the ebay seller advertised it as 16:9 you should demand a refund if it is not there. The trouble with ebay as a lot of people cut and paste info about stuff they have for sale so they could cut and paste info about an 8044 that has 16:9 but not realise the monitor they have doesn't have the feature.
FYI - The same is true for PVM-8041 to 8044 monitors, you have to check.
PVM-8045 monitors all have 16:9 and the switch is on the front.
