Is anyone else having overscan problems?
No matter what the source is, no matter what the resolution, the picture on my set is cropped. The TV's format button will toggle through the modes, and the image will change, but none make it fit.
PS3 hooked up via HDMI, set to 1080P = the user interface cut off. Full mode is teh closest, but it's still cut off on the sides.
HTPC (Intel i5) - on boot (low resolution), the text is cut off. At desktop (1920 x 1080) the sides are cut off. The only way I was able to make it fit correctly is using the videocard options to scale the screen down to 60%.
I have a case # open with Panasonic. They provided instructions to do a factory reset, which I will try when I get home from work. But I was wondering everyone elses experiences with overscan on this set.
Edit: Here is how to do a factory reset... in case anyone else needs to:
1) w/ power on, press and hold Menu on the remote + Volume Minus on the set.
2) after 10 seconds or so, the screen should display something about a self check. Unplug the set when you see this displayed.
3) wait 30 seconds to a min and replug in the set. Upon power up, it should go through all the prompts to re-setup the tv.
