Aspects of Aspects
The PHD-VRX has a unique feature nobody else can boast: complete aspect, offset and size control. You can fine-tune the aspect you want, though you should turn off Auto Aspect in the playback menu to avoid having to re-set it all the time.
I'll be specific: from TV-watching mode (after hitting [EXIT]):
select [AUTO ASPECT]
Then, after you start playing a program OR watching live, press [QUICK] and select [SCALE WINDOW]
Now you can select and adjust horizontal or vertical size and/or position. For example, you may want to move your image to the top of the screen for a more comfortable viewing angle, or to avoid granny's tchotchke in front of the screen. You get 1% increments, and a RESET button when you've given up on getting it right or don't want to have to move the image 100 pixels back.
Then turn on AUTO ASPECT once you want to go back to common viewing aspects.
Note that you can leave AUTO ASPECT off and just use [QUICK][SCALE WINDOW], but you'll have to re-adjust it after every time you leave viewing, say, to visit the recordings list.
FOOTNOTE: This is one of the pains about the extra remote ePivision sells: there's no QUICK button, so you have to manually set AUTO ASPECT and adjust SCALE WINDOW without being able to see a played-back program as you adjust.
