My TV will not display the entire picture for my CABLE device
My TV is displaying a picture too large so that I cannot see scores when watching sports. How do I reset this device to the correct picture size so it fits the screen? My other problem is that when I try to adust the device using the remote, nothing happens when I press device manager. Is there a way to adjust this setting for this device without using the remote?

Your cable box and TV are set to different resolutions. Check the setup on both and make sure everything is the same (ie 720p to 720p or 1080p to 1080p) Make sure your cable box can give you 1080p (Nice set, BTW!!). HDMI is supposed to automatically take care of the settings, but it does not hurt to double-check.
Depending on the manufacturer of the cable box, there may be screen setting for "letterbox" which should be selected.
Some TV channels, when redirected through a cable box, simply will not display full resolution (1080p) programming. Your cable TV provider can tell you which channels are displayed in high resolution.
Finally, make sure your cable provider gave you the correct box. Older boxes are not capable of providing 1080p resolution, and since you own a 1080p set, you deserve nothing less!
