I haven't seen many people mention overscan on the Samsung DLP tvs. When using AVIA, it seems there is quite a bit of overscan going on. Around 10%-12%, I believe. I have found no way to adjust this setting. Has anyone else noticed this? Is this just something DLP owners have to live with? For reference, here is a link to the article I learned about overscan:

Thanks,

You probably couldn't adjust it without somehow changing the optics; ie, changing distance between (or focus of) the lamp, dlp, lenses, screen. Perhaps there's some internal alignment you can do on these, like a fine screw adjustment.


Anyone?

On my Panasonic LCD PT40LC12 there is no convenient overscan

adjustment. In fact, my set had a misadjusted optics unit at first

which had to be replaced, and the technician said that the lack

of adjustability was breathtaking. I have examined my set and it would

indeed be easy to put the lens on a little plate with three adjustment

screws. That would do the job, but unless one has lots of experience

either with this sort of adjustment or with a large format view camera,

it's not easy to discuss in words or even pictures how to do it and get it right ... I learned on a view camera with Ansel Adam's books at hand

and eventually it becomes intuitive on such things, but with the "three screws" necessary to make it transportable I find it positively difficult.
