Hey, I'm watching CNN HD and on the left and right side of the wide screen the election result info graphics are cut off so I can't read them. I've been noticing this a lot with other HD channels where the logo in the corner is right on the edge of the screen or even cut off a little bit. The Smithsonian and Travel Channel HD logos are doing this. I thought maybe it was my TV, but the TV2 output to the 4:3 television shows the cut-off too, even when output as 16x9.

Is there any way to adjust this or is everyone seeing what I'm seeing. Check CNN HD and let me know if your left and right side graphics are cut off just a little so you can't see the full Delegate counts.

-thanks

Is it safe to assume that you have the 'format' correct? If not, try pressing the (*) key on the remote to cycle through the options.

Yes, the format is correct. It does it even when I choose an incorrect aspect ratio and can see the edges of the picture within the boundaries of the screen. The ends are slightly cropped on CNN HD and ESPN News HD. I can't see all the type in the side graphics, there's always one column of letters being cut off.

Your rear projection tv uses "overscan". Set it so that there is no overscan.

I'm noticed the same thing last night on my CRT tube Sony. First thing I thought of was I gotta get this thing calibrated.

I had this same problem, and messed with TV settings for quite a while. The fix was too simple - I just had to use the original TV remote's curser to move the picture to the center of the screen.
(I found this on the FAQ of the TV model's website - maybe try your TV manufacturer / model website )
