I like using this feature to help eliminate any burn in from 4:3 content...but I always fins my self switching back to dot by dot for most 1080p content.
I should also mention... this mostly happen while using my Dune media player. The screen size even bounces around when using the menu system of the Dune.
Is there a fix or a way to adjust the auto size settings?
Going to HOME MENU>SCREEN>AUTO SIZE> then WIDE ZOOM or NATURALare your only options for adjusting the "Auto" aspect ratio. If it is bouncing around then it's doing it's job. You cant "fix" that. If it senses bars on the side relatively close to what a 4:3 would produce then it's gonna stretch it, wether its an actual 4:3 signal or your content from your 16:9.
That being said I still suggest not going to dot by dot though. The dot by dot setting even on "16:9" feeds don't quite fill the whole screen most of the time. The media is just pulled over it and it seems most of the time doesn't fit the res specs for this set. I'm no expert but I can see it. With "auto" aspect on a 16:9 feed you lose a tiny bit of the pic. I think this is what you were referring to when you said overscan. I don't want to get uneven wear on the perimeter of my set. So I set it to auto. Like i said, Auto will cut off a tiny smidgion of the content, but it ls negligible. It bothered me too. But I decided I didn't want to risk having a 1/2 inch border of uneven wear in 3-4 years and just live with it. It's really barely anything.
Also yes, wide settings will crop/zoom the content a little. The stretch already makes it look weird. I think it is an attempt to keep the picture looking as good as possible by allowing it to zoom to prevent over distortion....in this case, lateral distortion.
WIDE 1 stretches the picture gradually larger starting from very minimal in the center to significant on the edge.
WIDE 2 will stretch the picture evenly throughout the entire screen.
Hope this helps
