    Are there any VCRs being sold today that allow the user to zoom out in order to correct for overscan?

    I understand that some DVD players allow this.

    Thanks.

    Thank you! I was spinning my wheels in resolving my overscan problem because I didn't know if I could solve it with a new vcr. At least, I can move forward and see whether any of the televisions that allow easy correction of overscan are affordable.

    Easy correction? Overscan is something that is adjusted during all professional calibrations, I'm pretty sure. So I would think all HDTV's allow it to be adjusted to some extent in their respective service menus.
