I have 2 VIP221Ks. On the 1 I watch the most, all of a sudden I have i guess what you would call overscan. Everything was working fine but not now. I have tried all of the settings on my TV, Sony Bravia.

Thee 211Ks software is L454. This problem is on all of Dishes HD channels with the TV in either HDMI and component inputs.

Did the change from MPEG 2 to MPEG 4 cause this? Or did something else change?

The first thought that comes into my mind is the "Format"/"*" button got punched
unintentionally. Bottom left on the remote.

You can check the Format state by pressing cancel and looking to the left below the banner.
It should say Normal not Stretch, Partial Zoom, Zoom, nor Gray Bar.
Press * button to cycle through these options.

Thanks for the help. thats exactly what it was. I guess I mistakenly hit the (*) at 1 time. I cycled through and it is back to normal. Again thanks for the help.
