I'm looking for help in resolving a screen resolution problem between my HTPC (WIN 8.1PRO), the Denon AVR-4520, and my (vintage?) Sony KV-34XBR910.

At this point, I don't know if the problem lies with the 4520, the Sony XBR, or the HTPC.

While other video sources - connected through the 4520 - look fabulous on the XBR, I can't seem to get the right resolution for the HTPC.

In it's current setup, the display extends beyond the bezel of the TV so that icons, menus, windows, taskbars, etc - anything on the periphery of the display - cannot be seen. It's a very frustrating experience.

Furthermore, when trying to change the resolution on the HTPC from 1920 X 1080 to something lower, the only other choice is 1280 x 720. WIN 8.1 PRO shows the display as "DENON-AVRHD" which makes sense since the HDMI cable is connected via the 4520.

The XBR has a 16:9 display at 1080i resolution. As mentioned, my Cable HD-PVR and other HD sources all scale correctly with no "overscan".

The Denon 4520 connects to the XBR via HDMI cable which plugs into a HDMI-to-DVI connector.

Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

Thanks,
Herb...

In the end, it was a video scaling issue, as suggested. However, the Intel Graphics 4600 Toolbox didn't have adjustments for overscanning. I solved the problem by purchasing a passively-cooled ASUS 2GB GT260 discrete video card.
Nvidia has an excellent toolbox that addresses overscanning issues with older displays and CRT's. Problem solved, thanks to NVIDIA.
