    I have a 65" Mitsu tv and I am trying to connect my computer to it via DVI. I get it connected fine and it shows up, but it cuts off a little of the screen all the way around. Its a ATI All in Wonder card and I read that this is a possible problem with ATI. Has anybody experienced this or know a way to fix it. Thanks.

    It's not just plain old overscan? If you hook up the ATI to an LCD monitor, which has no overscan, (via the DVI) do you see everything?

    If it is overscan, you can adjust the RPTV to minimize it, although you may not want to get rid of it entirely when watching TV. There are often little ugly bits on the edges.

    Also, even the best CRT based RPTV's cannot be set up with less than around 3% overscan, the electronics and lenses just wont allow it and still give a good picture geometry wise. 4-5% is a good value most ISF people shoot for.
