"JUST PRESS CINEMA MODE ON YOUR REMOTE CONTROL AND SELECT APPROPRATE VIEWING MODE" it might be located under the left of 0 with an image like stretching as indicated on my remote. It is the issue about the overscanning and underscanning of tv using HDMI connection. I have been the same problem as you but I did solved it using this. Hope this would help!

Just plugged my wharfedale tv into my pc. The computer starts up then a message of "no support" appears?

That just means that the display settings are not supported by the tv. If the video card support the right setting it is just a matter of adjusting it until the tv is happy.

Not sure what operating system but you may have a control near your clock for display or you can right click ona empty place on the desktop and then properties and then advanced. Just change the slide til it shows a usable resolution. You may need to use a normal monitor to set it up then pplug in the tv. The tv manual should have a list of supported resolutions.

Need a driver for windows 7

You do not need the driver fot the monitor but you do need the correct driver for the video card. As fas as the monitor is concerned, all you have to do is to make sure that you set the PC video resolution to the TV native resolution, otherwise you will get format not supported warning on the screen.

PC plug into the TV...not working

Screen resolution is set too high on the computer. Right click desktop > Properties > Settings > Change to 800x600 then connect to TV.
OR... boot the computer while connected to the TV and it should automatically figure out what resolutions the TV can do.

Invalid format message when trying to use the RGB(PC) port

Honestly, that sounds like one of two things happened. Either the resolution of your computer video card changed or (I'm not sure with your specific TV) the TV's resolution changed.
If through the TV menus you can adjust PC resolution, I would try changing the resolutions. In the LG 47LB5DF TV, press Menu, then go to Picture, then go down to Screen. On the screen menu, you will see Resolution, Position, Size, Phase, and Reset. First try adjusting the Resolution to some of the options you see. If that doesn't work, try to reset the screen settings.
If adjusting those settings on your TV does not help, then you will have to change the resolution through the computer. Try connecting a monitor to the computer. If you get a picture through the monitor, on the desktop right click and select Properties. If using XP go to the setting tab, if using Vista/7, select Display Settings. Lower the resolution to something you think the TV will be able to handle, then connect the PC to the TV again. If you are using an HDMI connection to the TV, you may have to turn off the computer, connect the cable, then turn the computer back on with the TV on the correct input.
If the monitor doesn't show the picture or if you don't have another monitor, you can try adjusting the picture in safe mode, by pressing F8 after you press the power button, before you see the Windows loading screen. Press if multiple times if necessary. You should see a screen that gives you a few startup options. Select Safe Mode. After Windows boots up, you should still see the screen as the resolution would have been reduced. From there try changing your display settings.
Hopefully that info has helped. I noticed that you asked this question 2yrs ago, so I hope you have already figured out how to fix your problem. I simply wished to post this in case it would help you or anyone else had a similar problem. Good luck and take care.

Resolution issue when connecting to a PC

if the tv accepts 640 x 480 via DVI lead in safe mode, then as long as the tv is set to work in conjunction with the same resolution as your pc by the pc to DVI setting, it must be your pc's graphics driver that is the problem, as in safe mode the graphics vga driver only is loaded and not the advanced graphics options and resolutions, so enabling you to view on an external monitor. You should be able to right click on your desktop, then graphics properties and select either clone/dual or monitor. If this option does not show then you need to go into your graphics cards properties and ensure that an external screen or multiple display; is enabled, depending on your graphics driver.
