I noticed recently that 1.85:1 source material (e.g. "Raising Arizona" blu-ray) shows full screen (e.g. 1.78:1 since the projector is 16x9 and there are no horizontal black bars at all) with the AE8000U. I asked on another thread and it was suggested that overscanning was the culprit, as it also appears full screen on my two TVs (one is 1080p and the other is UHD). Is this the case for other people with the AE8000U? I think overscan is set at 0 by default or am I incorrect? Do I have to just fiddle around with it or is there a setting/value that will eliminate the overscan (or a "1:1 pixel mapping" type setting name)?
Edit: I was playing in the menus last night and saw an "overscan" setting that ranges from "0" to "5" (or so) which causes slight zooming/overscan. But there is no ability to decrease (zoom out) the overscan to anything less than "0". But at "0" overscan, 1.85:1 movies still display at 1.78:1 (full screen, no black bars on top/below the image).
Can anyone confirm that 1.85:1 source material (e.g. blu-ray of Raising Arizona, Jerry Maguie, etc.) will fully display on the AE8000U, meaning that there will be thin black bars on top and below the image for a full (actual) 1.85:1 aspect ratio? I'm using an Oppo BD-103.
