Hello everyone,

I have an old Panasonic PV80 plasma TV that has 1024x768 resolution in 16:9 aspect ratio, and plugged my Wii U into it, but I'm having a hard time fitting content on the screen accordingly.

When setting to 720p, I cannot adjust the screen size to fit the TV, it keeps something always out. If 480p (which, for obvious reasons, I'm avoiding), there are black bars bottom and top.

Is there something I'm missing? Which configuration would your recommend?

Thanks in advance,

Marcelo

OP has a potato monitor...

I'm more amazed that such a monitor exists, and the wii u has terrible overscan/underscan support for weird resolutions.

What you need is a downscaler probably, otherwise maybe you should just get a new tv/monitor.

1024x768 is 4x3 AR while 1024x576 is 16x9 AR so there's really not much you can do other than live with the black bars, or buy an HDTV.

22"-25" is an all right size if you don't want anything too big.

Well, if you do have the option to fit to screen, you could have it set to 720p, which would display on a 4:3 resolution and then stretched out to the image aspect ratio of 1020:727. Like wtf is this TV.
