    I have converged all the screen modes on my 40H80 with the Toshiba grids. The picture looks fantastic with DVD as well some DBS content. Anyways, I noticed the other day while watching an anamorphic dvd (I do not recall the title) that if I put the tv in Theater Wide 1 I was able to see more of the horizontal picture. Full seems to be chopping of a little portion of the sides. Although with it in Theater Wide 1, the anamorphic picture was all squished as you would expect. I can reproduce it with any anamorphic DVD. Is the overscan supposed to be like that even after using the grids to converge, or do I have some other problem? Full is almost 5% on the sides Theater Wide 1 is about 3% to 3 1/2% according to Avia.

    I have noticed the same thing with my 50h81. Of course the full mode is the right one for anamorphic movies. I get my TV calibrated next week so I will see what happens.

    Hi Ryan,
    3-5% isn't bad at all. Some folks get greater than 5% overscan(diff brands).
    You can adjust the overscan from the service menu or if you have an htpc, you can just do it using yxy.
    Thanks,
    Errol
