Sony Bravia KDL-32L4000 1:1 Pixel ratio

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I bought this television a few months back when my trusty Westinghouse suffered and ill fate. This TV is great but there are a couple issues I notices and hope to find some advice or some help.

I notice that on this TV when using my Xbox 360 with HDMI regardless of the resolution I use it does not use 1:1 pixel ratio. It looks like the TV was setup to overscan slightly (like on older CRTs).

I'm not referring to the aspect ratio just the borders of the screen(top and sides) being over scanned slightly. My late Westinghouse would display the entire image but this TV does not. Unless I use the PC input(VGA) which honestly on this TV isn't very good. The image displayed is to blurry and while in this mode you can not change the sharpness or color settings.

Has anyone discovered a way to get it to display the whole image and or adjust the sharpness and color for the VGA mode input?

I own the same tv and I see know problems with my x360 being blurry or not going to full screen. Make sure you have changed the setting to 1080p on the xbox and then make sure if you use vga that you switch the xbox plug to hd. And then check to see that wide mode is set to full. I get a great picture with those settings on my x360.

The VGA cable there isn't a HD switch on the cable when using that cable you have to pic a specific resolution on the 360. I do get a full screen image but it's still over scanned a bit AKA not getting 1:1 pixel ratio it's just how this TV is designed. The blurriness is only when using the PC(VGA) input. HDMI is fine but it does not give me 1:1 pixel ratio as the VGA input does. I have said in my previous post I used all screen resolutions. ("I notice that on this TV when using my Xbox 360 with HDMI regardless of the resolution I use it does not use 1:1 pixel ratio.") I have tried 720p, 1080p, and 480p. I have also made sure that the screen mode on the TV is set to full and not wide zoom.

Again I was able to get 1:1 pixel ration on old Westinghouse or even on my Samsung LCD monitor. This TV however does not have 1:1 pixel mapping when using Component or HDMI.

I'm guessing that your TV's dont have a screen option in the menus? my 32xbr6 does and that is where you can set display area to full pixel, otherwise my tv does the same thing you describe, although my VGA input works fine with my xb360 I infact leave it hooked upto it now so i can get get full 1080p on my hd-dvd's

though considering its a lower model sony that must explain the VGA input quality and lack of pixel scale adjustments if that is the case i suppose

Edit: also if you do find the option to change the display area from normal to full pixel, make sure your feeding the input the tv's native resolution otherwise you wont get the full pixel option

The only available option on this TV for display when using the native resolution on HDMI source is either Wide Zoom or Full. When using "Full" and with the AVSHD ITU-R BT.709 calibration disc in the following image displays at 2.5% overscan on the edges.

After consulting with the manual and online I can not find any information that would allow me to truly turn the overscan off. Is this just a unit that does not allow the user to truly turn it off?
