    Hi,

    I have the 950 and when playing back various movie formats from DVD eg: DivX, Mpg AVI etc I have noticed that the scaling make the image too big so that I am missing some picture from all four sides (similar to what you would lose watching a 16:9 image on a 4:3 TV) this is very anouying, particularly when viewing content with subtitles. Can anyone shed some light on what is wrong or how to correct this :confused:

    Thanks

    if it is then its by a huge amount. I thought overscan was only at the left and right edges though?

    i had a problem playing mpg/avi etc in the correct ratio via hdmi. to play it correctly i use the scart output and stretch the picture via the tvs "cinema" mode (it stretches non anamorphic stuff to the right size). i think i might have had to set some stuff to 4:3 on the dvd player and use the tv to stretch it back the right way - sounds confusing, but just muck around with the different settings on both dvd and tv - you cant choose all the options with hdmi though

    No, overscan affects all sides.

    Thanks for those replys. I am viewing via HDMI so may try it via scart for DivX.

    I output via HDMI to a Panasonic AE500 projector - PQ is virtually the same across all modes of HDMI ( I think the PJ does the upscaling for itself) - the only difference is that if I output at the lowest mode (480p/576p) then I can still control the screen resolution from the PJ - in all other modes the aspect ratio on the PJ is locked at 16:9

    I only noticed this after I put the multi region hack in - but it may have been there already

    I can set the Zoom features etc. You recon if I set it to 4:3 the the top and bottom overscan may lessen?

    you mean u CANT set the zoom feature when playing divx or mpeg? it doesnt work for me. i use scart (component will also probably work) and use the tv zoom setting to stretch the picture to the correct ratio (no over obvious overscan). i think with a couple of things i might have had to set to 4:3 on the dvd player first

    if u muck about with the settings you will get it without too much overscan or zoom
