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".
I should mention that I am using an HDMI cable from the 4520 to connect to a HDMI-to-DVI adapter on the Sony.
The Sony manual states the follow about the DVI connection:
Digital Visual Interface (DVI): Can accommodate a copy-protected digital connection (HDCP*) to other devices (such as digital set-top boxes) that have compatible interfaces.
The DVI-HDTV input terminal is compliant with the EIA-861 standard and is not intended for use with personal computers.
The reference to use with PC's is interesting. Not sure why that would be a problem.
Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?
