Should I just make the image a multiple of 720p, like 1920x1440 (720 wide times two)? Would that at least fill the height of the screen, leaving bars on the sides?
I'm sorry that I can't give you defniitive answer tonight, as I promised. My wife is watching the TV...
Before I lost control, I did try downloading the following test image (in 1920x1080), putting it on a memory card, and displaying it using wiselink:http://www.tigerdave.com/test_patterns.htm
I tried the 1920x1080 pattern in wiselink on my 6188 with overscan turned off in the service menu. Good news: The image fills the whole screen. Bad news: There's still overscan and the set utterly fails to resolve the fine lines in the pattern. Worse news: There appear to be small convergence errors. How can there be convergence errors in a single chip set?
I also tried burning the images onto a CD and displaying them through my Samsung DVD-HD960 over HDMI. In this case, the image did not fill the scrren - there were black boxes on either side. Perhaps the player is expecting that the set has overscan enabled?
Hmmm... My wife may have surrendered control of the TV. More in a bit...
