No. It's an older Hitachi 55" Plasma.

Just before the ISF and such became mainstream. It's not high end enough to have such a feature.

I remember back in the RPTV days and early HDTV days ISF calibration was a seldom though about thing.

Nice to see features like that today and the acceptance of such.

My projector came darn near 6500k right out of the box. That would have never happened five years ago, or with any ordinary TV you buy from a box store.

I wish I could disable the overscan in the user menu. I am sure I can in the service menu. I used to know Hitachi service menu like a pro back in the RPTV days. I can still see those stupid convergence grids.

Now I can't even remember if entering it is menu+input+power ?

I guess I could search online for the info how to disable or reduce in the service menu of the TV. That might be a better option than moving the sliders to 65%

Wouldn't the setting "just scan" fix this?

The service menu looks like its here:

I have a US version and the service menu is different than the AU version you linked.

I am not sure what "just scan" is.

"Just Scan" is what some model TV call "1:1" or turning off overscan.

I noticed tonight setting up a new HTPC on my 2007 50" 720p Panasonic (also no option to turn off overscan) that the Intel Graphics Properties sliders now go by 1% not 5% and change the ratios as you slide them. It looks much better than it used to.
