Gents,


I have scanned the HDTV hardware forum for answers to the question I am going to pose, but have not found the specific problem addressed.


In any event, I am losing around a quarter to half inch of the left side of the television picture on HD feeds and up to an inch or so on Standard Definition feeds on my Sammy DLP. I have attempted different DVI cables to remedy the problem without success. I am currently using a Monster DVI cable for the connection.


XBOX and DVD feeds into the TV have the full picture, therefore given my limited technological skills, it would appear to be a problem with my SIR-TS160. My caller ID is also dysfunctional.


Has anyone else had a problem with image cropping on the LEFT side of their television screen with the Samsung SIR-TS160???


Much thanks in advance for your thoughts/suggestions to correct this problem.

You need to center the picture on the T160. On your remote, hit "menu" then "set-up", then "installation" then "monitor set-up". This is where you can set the center point for your image.

I have the ssame setup as you HLM617W + SIRTS160.


You can center the raster image with DVI as baja suggests, but even then on SD material, it'll still crop the image on the left and right (look at the stock ticker on the right on CNBC and you'll see part of it gone). Samsung tech support tried to convince me it's normal...hah!


I used the DVI cable for nearly a year, but recently I've gone to using a high quality component cable instead for 720p out from the 160. I'm much happier with it. SD material looks much, much better and the image isn't cropped on the L/R edges. On HD material there isn't much noticable difference, but it certainly isn't worse as far as I'm concerned.


My DVI cable sits in a closet now.


Anyway, if you're concerned about cenetring and cropping, consider trying a component cable instead.

I had the same problem...it's been awhile, but here is what I think I did to fix it:


Try some different settings using the ASPECT button on the remote.


If when you are within the DVI input the TV does not allow you to change the aspect ratio, toggle to a different input (component or S-Video) on the TV and try the ASPECT button from within that input.


Then toggle back to the DVI input and see if the cropping issue goes away.


From there, use the method (from within the receiver menu) -- that the others have mentioned above -- to fine tune the cropping.
