    They formatting on my TV is like gay. I haven't really cared but now I do. Like the picture doesn't match my TV screen. Like for example when I'm playing CoD:WAW I can't see the bottom team's score, or when I'm watching SNF/MNF (The only idiots who put the score at the bottom) I can't see anything there.

    What kind of a solution could I use to fix this? And it isn't an HD it's just a standard TV.

    Somewhere on your remote should be a menu button. Press that, and look for a display menu... then enter the display menu and change the settings to your liking.

    If you gave us a particular model of television to work with, I'm sure somebody would just search on Google for the exact method.

    I don't know exactly how on your exact TV but you'll need to get into the display settings and change the ratio.

    There should be a button on your television then... just get out the instructions if you really have that hard a time finding it. I'm sure you could look up the instructions online with the model number, and if you have the television you can find the model number.
