Have been a lurker here for awhile, but I finally decided to join in when I became stumped with a problem that, quite frankly, is doing my head in. I have a KDL46HX800 TV and every input, apart from component, has no overscan issues. Over component I'm losing quite a bit all the way around. If I put it to display +1 I get this annoying grey bar going down the side. Now, I have the service menu code, but have no idea how to set the horizontal and vertical on a certain input. If anyone has done this themselves on this particular TV, or at least could point me in the right direction, I would be truly grateful, as it's one of those things that I can't let rest (you all know what I'm talking about. ^^)
Thanks in advance for the help.
So there's no way that I can manually change the vertical and horizontal. You sure? Well that sucks.
Any other ideas? The overscan is at keast an inch and there's nothing I can do in the ordinary menus. I've got the latest firmware installed also.
The only other thing I can think of (if it is available) is to make sure that your 480p source has the right aspect ratio to match with the full pixel ratio of your TV.
EX: The WiiU has an option to expand or decrease the safe area or aspect ratio to match it with the TV. But WiiU is doing 1080p obviously.
Otherwise, contact Sony...
I have contacted SONY and, although I have received a reply, as yet they haven't provided me with a solution.
Thanks for the interest.
