I have the 811 hooked to a Panasonic 60" LCD projection TV. The picture from the 811 overflows my TV screen on the sides and I can't find any way to adjust it. The problem only occurs on the HD channels.

I've tried the DVI and component outputs and the problem exists with both. I even tried setting the 811 to 4x3 output, that gave me bars at the bottom of the screen but the picture still overflowed the sides of the screen.

The TV apparently has the ability to adjust screen size but only for SD inputs. Anytime it's receiving 720p or 1080i signal I can move the picture a bit but can't change the actual size.

Is this a known bug or am I just not finding the right setting in the 811?

Have you tried the "Format" (*) button on the lower left hand corner of the remote? That cycles through the HD 'normal', 'stretch', 'partial zoom', etc modes (I may not have the precise names here).

I think the Menu settings should be 16x9 and 1080i for your set.

Actually on the 811 its the "page up" button to format the HD output mode.
