    Hello,

    This is my first post on this forum, so I hope someone can help me.

    I inherited a Beovision 7-40 from my grandfather and I like it a lot, so I want to keep it to play my collection of DVD’s and VHS videotapes.

    The only thing that I cannot figure out is to change the picture aspect radio on this television, because most of the VHS are in 4:3.

    In every manual I find on the internet they say to tap the LIST button on the BEO4 remote several times to list FORMAT on the BEO4 display, but the only options I can see are AV and STAND.

    Can someone help me? Am I missing a crucial step?

    Thanks in advance.

    Best regards

    Hi and welcome to Beoworld.

    You need to “add” the controls in the beo4 list of soft keys:

    Press red dot and list simultaneously, the screen should then display “Option?”.
    Press List again, the screen should then display “Add?”.
    Press Go, now you can cycle all the soft keys available by pressing the List key.
    When you have found the soft key you’re looking for, press Go.
    The control will now be available by pressing the List key.

    You can also reorder the soft keys by moving them to the top one by one.

    The Beo4 manual is widely available on the internet and explain the detailled procedure.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you so much Matador!

    That was the missing step. It works.
