Question about Panasonic Viera TH-42PX80U Plasma TV
When I connect my Sony Vaio to my 42" Panasonic Viera 720p plasma via the HDMI input, the screen is not displayed properly. It cuts off about 5% on every side, like it is "zoomed in" too far. I can't figure out how to adjust this. Any help? I tried changing the resolution but edges of the screen are still missing. I'm using Ubuntu.
Right click onyour desktop and click properties (Windows XP) or personalize (Windows Vista).
Click the tab that says Settings(XP) or the link that says Display Settings (Vista)
Adjust your resolution by sliding the bar up or down until your dispaly matched the optimum resolution of your TV.

I have had what is fundamentally the same problem. I have a desktop PC that I am plugging in to my Panasonic Viera TX-32LZD80. I am using DVI connection plugged in to HDMI port.
The solution is fairly simple; use the Menu button on the TV remote to get to the Main Menu for the TV and then select Setup which should be the fourth of four options. This will get you to the Setup Menu for the TV for the current channel. Look for the Picture Overscan option, it will very probably be set to On if you have the problem of %5 or so of display being missing on all sides.
Switch Picture Overscan to Off.
This immediately should solve your problem. A note of warning on this is that I suspected this was the problem but when I first looked at the Setup Menu I could not find the Picture Overscan option.
If you are unable to find the Picture Overscan option then trying fiddling with the Aspect settings. You will probably find it set to Auto. Switch it to 16:9 and you should find the Picture Overscan option will be available from the Setup Menu.
Hope it works for you.
