Not sure what to do, this game doesnt fit my tv...

Ok So I got through the first bit ok where you escape execution and I got to the first town but during that time I got multitasking and am not sure what to do now. Its even worse becuase the game doesnt fit my tv and I cant see where to go with the compas on the top of the screen. I think I'm supposed to talk to some guy in a fortress to tell them if there are dragons but I get attacked and cant survive that. I'm not even sure if I'm supposed to go there becuase I'm too under leveled. Anyway, I'm restarting just to see what I should do but yea, any help would be great.

Is it just Skyrim or your PS3 in general that doesn't fit the tv? There is an easy fix for the PS3 but I'm not sure how you would go about fixing Skyrim since mine doesn't have that problem.

everyother game fits. The tv is square shape rather than wide screen.

It happens on SDTVs, I had a small HDTV repaired by a friend thankfully.

Is there an option on your tv to change screen format or aspect ratio? Or is there an option in the menu to adjust screen size manually or change toa 4:3 ratio?

Not sure, where would those options be?

no, the only way you can change the ratio is by the ps3 settings, and that doesnt help. skyrim doesnt have display setting like that. i have the same problem, and its frustrating when i cant see how many picks i have when picking a lock or if i cant see the full compass.

Ya sounds like SDTV. I'm playing on a standard tv. The top to bottom is fine but the left to right is off. When I pull up my inventory for example on the left side I can only read half the words. Not sure if there's a fix for it. Maybe a user before me has said one.

Also gotta hate playing on SDTV. Certain text is very hard to read in it. This is with other PS3 games though that are fine when played on HDTV's.
