Question about Philips Magnavox 42MF521D/37 Television
I have my computer hooked up via DVI to HDMI to the TV. I have an overscan problem with this connection. The weird thing is sometimes it will overscan and sometimes it won't. What I have noticed is when it does overscan on the info screen of the TV it reports the signal as 1080p. But when it does not overscan the info screen reports the signal as 1920x1080/60hz. I want t know how to make a certain input in this case HDMI1 always see the signal as the 1920x1080/60hz so that I don't have this overscan problem. Can I get into the maintenance screen and change the setup to make this happen?
This TV has a pixel resolution of 1366x768p
It will accept a 1920x1080i input from a high def source , but running a PC at 1920x1080i/p will cause the problems you describe, depending on what the PC is sending to the TV, because PC signals are not the same as high def.
Your PC should be set to a resolution as near to 1366x768 as possible. My PC allows 1280x768 and 1360x768. Try one of these for best results.
There are no settings on the TV to solve this problem.
