I sure wish the stations would get their "Auto-Aspect" settings correct.
WX+ is a 4:3 broadcast, so the aspect setting on the Apex can't be changed. If you try, you just get an error message; the overscan can't be eliminated.
On 16:9 broadcasts, the normal/letterbox setting will eliminate the (vertical) overscan (there's still some horizontal overscan but that's rarely a problem), but it still overscans on the fill or zoom settings. (On most TVs, anyway. A very few TVs can display the DT250's output without serious overscan; I'm lucky enough to have one.)
