I have several game systems, including a PS2, Dreamcast, and an N64. Whenever I play games on the PS2 or Dreamcast the upper left corner of the screen is bent in. Also, I have some graphics, like borders, etc, running off the screen in some spots, along the edges of the screen. Basically, the picture is warped towards the edges. I have a 32" Sony TV and my friend has a Mitsubishi and we both have this exact same problem with our Dreamcast and PS2 -- except I don't have the problem with my N64. All of the systems are hooked up via s-video and I'm fairly certain that the component connections have the same problem. Anyone know if there's any way possible to fix this? If nothing else I would want to be certain that the next TV I purchase does not reproduce this problem. Thanks for the help!

my dreamcast is shifted like an inch to the left on my rptv. altho on the 27" direct view it's fine. dunno if it's the same thing you are experiencing, but it's annoying for sure.


my dvd list
"what, were they psychos?" "did they look like psychos? is that what they looked like? they were vampires. psychos do not explode when sunlight hits them, i don't give a *#@% how crazy they are."
