SOURCE: magnavox 37MF337B/37 overscan only sometimes problem

This TV has a pixel resolution of 1366x768p

It will accept a 1920x1080i input from a high def source , but running a PC at 1920x1080i/p will cause the problems you describe, depending on what the PC is sending to the TV, because PC signals are not the same as high def.

Your PC should be set to a resolution as near to 1366x768 as possible. My PC allows 1280x768 and 1360x768. Try one of these for best results.

There are no settings on the TV to solve this problem.

SOURCE: Hp plasma ID5226N can get external audio input

DVI cables are usually HDMI compatible. The downside is that DVI usually doesn't carry any audio. Your computer may need a specific audio card to transmit audio/video data from your DVI output to the HDMI input on the TV. You can find one at your local computer store and ask if it is compatible with your computer
I hope this helps...good luck

Hello

Without moving to a hard reset as you described, reset it by the following method, and try the rest.

To reset the AV receiver to its factory defaults,

turn it on and, while holding down the [VCR/DVR]

button, press the [ON/STANDBY] button. "Clear"

will appear on the display and the AV receiver will
enter Standby mode.

Note that resetting the AV receiver will delete your
radio presets and custom settings.

The onscreen setup menus appear only on a TV that is

connected to the HDMI OUT. If your TV is connected

to the composite video or S-Video MONITOR OUT,

or the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT, use the AV
receiver's own display when changing settings.
OK

SOURCE: HDMI input says "mode not compatible"

If your Playstation is putting out the signal in 1080p then try changing it to 1080i and see if that works. Not all TVs are compatible with 1080p.

Testimonial: "Don't know how I never considered that the PS3 output settings would have been the problem. I was so fixated on the TV settings that I completely overlooked the PS3 setup! That was outstanding advice!"

How do I enter the service menu on an Emerson EWF2004 CRT Television? (Pictures of the OVERSCAN ISSUE will be provided if needed.)


Older sets had vertical and horizontal size controls. If you have the horizontal size control, turning it counterclockwise will reduce the size of the picture horizontally and reduce the overscan.

White stripe on screen


Unfortunately it seems that each time I turn the tv on and off it resets the screen position and I have to adjust it each time.

I would assume that my set would remember the settings.
Use Picture Size, not Picture fit. Set it to 16:9, instead of Fit To Screen. There's a handy button the the remote for this: P-Size. And the setting sticks between shut-offs.

What you are seeing is called "overscan", extra information that most broadcast stations send, because most old TV's were set to zoom-in/crop the signal they received. So.. with new TVs, like your Samsung, you get the choice between size "Fit to Screen" which is 1-to-1, for pixel-accurate inputs like Blu-Ray and DVD, and size "16:9" which is really "support for overscan", for old, less precise signals like broadcast.

Vchip rest. Inputs won't show HDMI


Make sure you have a good hdmi cable, and make sure you have a signal. Try another HDMI slot, and see if that helps. If nothing works, unplug the HDMI inputs and turn the set off overnight. Then plug each HDMI plug in one at at time, and turn the device on. This helped in a couple of instances I know of.
Since I don't know the model you have, the following blog may or may not be helpful to you:

Good luck, and hope this helps.

Screen is not in digital mode for display it is in analog mode. we have a 64 bit computer from HP


Has it got a HDMI cable in it or the "standard" cable?? If you buy the HDMI cable (Provided the PC has the same port) it will auto view in Dig mode.

Insignia 22'' LED HDTV screen resolution problem with VGA


This is more of an alternative than a solution... but I solved my problem by getting a dvi to hdmi adapter and connecting to my mac desktop via hdmi. Once I then turned off the overscan in the menu I got a perfect 1080p image. Hope this helps. :-)

Words on screen can be seen


In the picture there is a check box labeled "overscan"
Uncheck it.
If that doesn't work... What input are you using? This can also happen with the incorrect DVI or HDMI to M1-D adapter. If you are using the M1-D computer input try using the composite input. If you are using the computer with a computer source try changing to the external monitor screen resolution or aspect ratio.
