Does anyone know why the Mitsubishi 7000U puts black bars on the sides when projecting a 1080p image through the DVI input? How do we set the projector to use the full chip resolution and light output without wasting it with black bars on the sides?

Top and bottom bars are obviously a result of 2.35:1 aspect ratio picture coming out through a native 16:9 AR projector, but side bars should not be there. Anyone else seen this and know how to fix it?

You mean the HDMI input? I didn't notice any bars on mine.
Check the overscan, default on mine was in the 90% range. (93 I think)

Sounds like a setting on your source...perhaps it isn't set to 16:9 native?
