I used HDMI for my PC connection (DVI->HDMI) and had the overscan issue. I initially thought it was the drivers of the PC.
When I first bought the TV, I was building a new PC so I was concentrating on that instead. I turned the HDTV on and turned on the X360 to the dashboard, to make sure the TV turned on ok and there were no glaring problems. On the dashboard, it's always zoomed out, so even with this overscan issue, I didn't notice it at first because I could still see all the text and stuff on screen.
Then my brother played some 360 and played the original Doom. The character's face was cut off on the bottom, and I thought that was wierd. Then I tried more games, and it seems that the whole screen is slightly overscanned. The same thing happens with the cable. I turned on my older 42" LCD projection Sony and this new one, to the same exact channels specifically with static icons like ESPN. The 46E3000 still cut them off slightly. I never had this problem with my older Sony.
I'm about to call Sony tech service, so I'll update on what happens.
EDIT UPDATE: Just called them. The rep said to (1) turn the TV off and unplug it for about 10 minutes, and to (2) run auto scan for the channels again. Before doing either of them, I can tell they won't help the problem, as neither relate to it.
I also asked the rep if there have been other problems or complaints with this TV from other buyers, and she said there have been none on record at Sony thus far. I'll try them anyway when I get home, but looks like I'll be moving onward to a replacement TV or a tech coming out to look at it.
