Hello, I'm looking for a device that fixes overscan, so that I can connect my Wii-U into it, and then connect the device to my HDTV. As many people are aware, the Wii-U doesn't play it safe and puts important text/symbols right at the edge of its display, thus being cropped by most HDTV's, as most HDTV's have overscan, and many of them have no possible way to fix it (not even within the service menus).
Now, please don't say "By a new TV!". That's nearly impossible for me. You see, I'm very sensitive to "input lag", and I got very lucky and found the Panasonic L32X1 brand new, and purchased it. The X1 Panasonics are considered to be the ultimate gaming HDTV's, because they have anywhere between 2ms of lag to at most, 8ms. And buying a HDTV that has anything over 16ms will not be tolerated by me. So I was out of options, and had to get a lag-free TV, and this was my best choice. So I absolutely CANNOT get another 32" HDTV unless its less than 1 frame of lag, AND has zero overscan, and almost no blur (Panasonic ALHPA panels are best with this, no post-processing needed).
I recently used a Micca HD Media Player that had a option called "FIT" that can detect how much overscan my TV applies, and then zooms to fit the pixels nearly perfectly. Thus, no overscan. I thought to myself "Well, if this little Media Player can do that, then surely there is something that can act as a bridge between my Wii-U and HDTV that does the same thing".
So what do you guys suggest? Any devices?
P.S. I suppose I "could" wait for a firmware update from Nintendo that has a global screen adjustment (afterall, the Wii-U eShop has this option along with the Internet Browser). But Nintendo is not always ready to take suggestions from customers. HOWEVER, if you google "WiiU Overscan", you will see LOTS of pages complaining about this, already within the first few days after launch! So to further press this issue, I made a carefully worded thread on Nintendo's support forum. Please if you wish to get Nintendo to listen, join in and complain with me.
