I'm running 720p on my 360, because it's clearer than the 768p PC Mode. But 720p Overscans the picture which makes it larger. Any way to fix this?

If you are using the Component Cables make sure the switch on the cable(part that you insert into Xbox 360) is set to HDTV and not TV because if its set to TV, no matter what resolution you choose it will go back to 480i.

If your using HDMI cable make sure that your TV is also outputting at an HD resolution. Like okay let me explain this more clearly I'm not sure on Sony HDTV's but we have a 46" Sharp Aquos HDTV LCD. I found out that the TV itself was still set to output at 480i even though the Direct TV receiver was set to HD so I went to my TV's options and changed to output the TV at 1080i then after that everything was clear because both the receiver and the HDTV was outputting at HD.

That maybe your problem. If your 360 in the settings menu is saying its at 720p and your TV still looks long, maybe your TV's Zoom options are set to Stretch or Zoom, so basically you need to change your TV's options to output at Normal.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

You did not give your model number of receiver. Some of the ones from 2007 or so have a switch on the back for video resolution, 480i, 480p 720p 1080i so set this switch to 480i.

How do we get the picture back to normal? The picture seems to be stuck in a zoom mode. The wide button does not fix this.

its probably a zoom setting on your cable or sat box.

sat - push the format button at the top or bottom of the remote to switch modes

cable -
go in to the cablebox menu, go to video settings, make sure its set to 1080i and 480i for 4:3 over ride, not stretch or zoom

* The video resolution is selected in order of priority as follows: 1080p > 1080i > 720p > 480p/576p > Standard (NTSC:480i/PAL:576i).
If [Composite / S Video] is selected in step 4, the screen for selecting resolutions will not be displayed.

I have two Sharp Flat Screen TV model # LC-26SB14U. One is hooked up to a regular Dish Network HD receiver. The other is hooked up to a HD DVR receiver. Both are hooked up to the same Phillips DVD player....

if you using the component input on both tvs I will check the settings on the receivers, "HD setup", the difference is because the settings are set one on 480i and the other on 1080i

Picture shifts to left

I had the offset left issue for non-HD channels with my Panasonic 42" plasma, using Comcast HD cable box. Went into the configuration menu (to get there with the newer Comcast boxes, you have to turn the box off, then hit the menu button on the box immediately after). You will see on the menu a resolution (probably says 1080i), then below it a "4:3 override". Our said 480i. When I changed it to "none", so that it stayed 1080i, it worked! It also works by selecting 480p, but then the picture is stretched.
