My screen is cut off at both ends picture is stretched out

You could be in overscan mode. There might be a video button on the remote that allows switching between the various video output mode.

How to change the screen size on a Westington TV

In order for you to change the screen size on your Westington TV you have to press on Format on your remote (it is the button between the volume and the channel, right under the input button). As you press on it, it will change the display. From
  • Standard: Picture is displayed in its original size.
  • Fill: Picture is displayed to cover the entire screen.
  • Overscan: Picture is scaled down to fit the display area.
  • 1:1 Mode: Matches the incoming resolution exactly to the pixels without any scaling.

And now everything should be good!

Vizio 42 in TV LCD HDTV white line across to of

That white line (usually jagged) is actuallly part of the transmitted picture. However, you are not intended to see it because it is located in what is known as the 5% overscan area. Your TVs today are more than just cable ready... they are a versital, technology filled multimedia display. You can see that line because the screen size or wide mode you are using is intended for 1080p/24 signals. You have 0% overscan with this screen size setting. This allows you to see ALL of the picture, including portions of the picture the broadcaster did not intend for you to see. You can change your screen size using the Wide feature in the Setup menu. See pg.62 of your user manual for details and descriptions of the various wide modes.

Computer display is too big for screen

You need to turn off OVERSCAN in your computer display controls. This will reduce the picture size by 5 to 10% and allow access to the edges. Expect there may be an edge around the screen with nothing in it. Overscan was introduce in TVs to use the whole tube. It is not needed in digital displays. -Ken

Display to big with PS3

All CRT RPTVs have overscan, and some sources bring this out more than others.

It can always be cured to at least be able to see the needed parts of the pic, but hoses your picture beyond belief, and correcting that takes time, experience, patience and expertise.

I do overscan reduction on all CRT RPTVs as part of what my calibrations offer, but charge extra to do so.
