Is there anyway to get my old Panasonic 1999 projection tv to go full screen? I have the black bars on top and bottom.

I have HD set top - remote control xr2.

There are no options on my tv for aspect ratio or stretch option.

I had a channel on yest that was full screen. 99.9% aren't.

There's not an option for that on the remote. How is your box hooked up to the TV? There's no menu button on the TV or the TV remote to access any controls?

It sounds to me like your television is analog. Comcast most likely does not supply an analog signal for any service area by now.

 

A digital signal used now  with a converter box would produce: vertical bars, horizontal bars, or both, depending on signal output for program, commercials, etc. I don't recall ever seeing an analog television with any control of picture output. It may be time to replace the tv, or just live with it.
