    I have a Pioneer 868 attached via HDMI/DVI to an Hitachi 42PD5200. I'm trying to set the 868 up and having particular trouble with the resolution - basically I end up with a display that's too big for the screen or one that's too small! No doubt something simple but it's got me beat.
    Does anyone else have this same combination who can advise me which settings in which menus on which device that I should be updating?
    Any help very gratefully received.
    (p.s. Apologies for duplicate posting in the DVD Players forum but wasn't sure which forum i should use for the best)

    I looked at this combo on dsiplay in Sevenoaks S & V in cardiff. I was curious why they were using the component output. They said the HMDI is not compatible with the hitachi because it assumes the DVI signal is a PC one. Something to do with freq. I think.

    Sorry to be bit vague. hope this helps just a little.

    Just seen this reply - it's a setting in the TV menu which switches from PC to STB (or similar). Picture is now excellent.
    Thanks
