Question about Televison & Video
When the picture is too large there are three possible solutions at least.
Starting with the simplest two: There are buttons on the remote controls (cable/satellite and television) that control the picture size. On the cable remote it is usually on the bottom, and it says hd zoom. Press it and it will size the picture down for you. On the television or satellite remote it might say view mode, picture mode, format or aspect.
Now, the more difficult solution if the above doesn't work: The settings might not be right in the cable box/set top box. If the television is a 720p television, make sure the cable box/set top box is set for 720p and not 1080i even though they're the same (yes, yes I know). Also make sure you are not connecting a cable/set top box to the coaxial rf input when you have the capability to connect to a component or hdmi cable. I hope this helps.

On your remote there should be a ZOOM button that will strech the screen to full screen it may not be a desirable look but most formats today for HD tv is widescreen format also in your menu system you can change this as well. thanks for using fixya please click the accept button.

SOURCE: Picture Is Too Big for Screen
Sounds like your cable box is zoomed in, I run into this a lot when running service calls. On most cable provider's remotes there is an 'aspect' button next to or around the '0'. Try that and see if it helps you out at all :)

Go into the setup menu of the TV, and you'll find a category called DISPLAY or ZOOM. That's where you can change the aspect ratio so that it fits on the screen. You'll probably get a gray band on the top and bottom of the screen due to the re-sizing.

I have the same problem with my insignia.
The screen was all "pixel-ated" .
Sometimes the picture would be clear and then it would go all fuzzy.
One day in frustration I kinda smacked it. Guess what? ... the picture cleared up.
Since then about once a week I kinda have to smack the right or left side jst to the left or right of the screen.

Ok, so I think I have your solution :)
You're actually my first when it comes to this site, so hopefully this fixes your problem!
Step 1 - Turn off the cable box, but leave the TV on
Step 2 - On the front of the 8300HD, press the "guide" button and the "info" button at the same time
Step 3 - Choose "HD" for High Definition, or "SD" for standard definition. (Sounds like you're HD?)
Step 4 - Choose the aspect ratio 16:9
Step 5 - Choose "progressive scan" if it asks you.
Now press the "power" button on the box, does that fix it?
