I got my new widescreen tv (hitachi 51F500) I put in DVE and low and behold, the horizontal overscan is about 5% and the vertical is 7.5% I though the whole idea of widescreen tvs was to fix aspect ratio problems like this. I put in finding nemo which is anamorphic so it should fill the whole screen. There are parts of it missing. I can chech this by switching from 16:9 to 4:3 mode on the tv so even though it is squished I can still see that picture on the edge is missing. I can't tell vertically because because changing the tv's aspects doesn't do anything but stretch and zoom in. Is there a way to deal with this overscan? I don't think there is anything in the users menues but I could be mistaken so if anyone has my tv it would be great if you knew. If I can't do anything myself what can I do. I doubt my parents would pay for someone to come and correct it because they really wouldn't notice a difference if it was 25% overscanned and losing 1/4 of the picture!
