Question about Gateway FPD2485W Television
When I attached Samsung DVD-R155 (with built in tv tuner) to my Gateway, the picture does not take 100% of the screen size, leaving a couple of milimters (up to a centimeter) either on the right side of the screen (picture not centered) or on both sides. This is irrelevant of the video scaling mode selected on Gateway, and irrelevant of upscaling mode on Samsung.
It depends where the line is centered most, to the right or left of the center, there are buffer boards that control the vertical video, on the bottom part of the unit if you take the back off and look at the bottom part of the set you will see these address boards, they are usually about 2 inches wide and could be labeled J or K, if the unit is High Definition then you could have these buffer boards on the top part of the unit also

I have had the same problem on my gateway plasma for a year now. My 2nd TV just started to show similar defects on the screen. I can never get a straight answer as to what causes this problem yet it is a very common defect on these tv models (gateway) most accurate answer I got from gateway was that it is better to buy a new one.

Thanks for your update ertbs500, you may be able to just run an HDMI from that cable box to the PC but I have never done that and I have never done a TV tuner card either.
Low signal strength makes no sense at all seeing as how the coaxiel is plugged DIRECTLY in to the tuner card. Low signal would be from wireless. Maybe it is talking about wireless and somehow the coaxle is not transmitting signal for some reason, or the PC is not seeing it. Sorry I can not be of more help! I would look online for forums or guide on how to set up Media Center for your tuner card.

If you have a black stripe probelm on your Gateway TV, check out firstname.lastname@example.org. I asked him for help last year (September '08) and his solution worked perfectly. Still no more stripes (I had 4 of them) and here it is June 23, 2009!!
