    Should this feature be turned ON or OFF for this projector? Or does it depend on what source material (HDTV, DVD, DirecTV/cable) is being watched?

    play with it, it just cuts off the outer pixels all around.

    some sources or channels have noise on the outer edges that would need it enabled to clean up the displayed picture.

    My HTPC doesn't need it on for DVD / HD playback, but certain 480i cable channels needed it.

    Thanks for the reply Darryl. So you're saying DVD/HDTV source material doesn't need it, and overscan should be turned off for maximum resolution?

    With overscan off, I've heard some people position their picture so that the noise lines are just beyond the screen border and cannot be seen. Is that true?
