Do you know what format the picture is in? 16 X 9 wide, theatre mode, zoom, etc... And what type of signal source do you use? Never seen a problem on the bottom, but have seen Dish Network boxes that have an adjustment for left to right Horizontal. Maybe there is one with vertical adjustment for centering picture? Don't know just thinking of any easy solutions. Of course the closed caption solution is probably correct. If not post back and I'll get out the manual on cd.

You need to replace convergence out chips in your Toshiba 57H81 tv by qualified tech because 3-D look picture in rear projection tv shows some thing wrong with convergence output chips.
Your tv model number shows it is rear projection tv that use 3 tubes to make color picture on front screen where as dlp tv use one lamp as back light source to present picture at front screen that is generated in light engine.
