Television pictures are a series of still pictures that are presented quickly to give the illusion of continuous movement.
1080p and 1080i indicate how these pictures are formed.
1080p is progressive scan. It is a format that "paints" the picture left to right, top to bottom. On older tube type screens, this would cause the top of the picture to be dimmer than the bottom, as the phosphers would fade before the next picture was painted.
1080i is interlaced scan. This format paints every other line from top to bottom, and then paints the lines it missed before moving to the next picture. This evens out the brightness.
If your TV is capable of 1080p, it is considered to be the best picture (but you probably won't see the difference).
you have a few settings to size the picture as best as it can be sized.
format, aspect and size . try setting the TV (remote) format to full, fill or just.TV size to 16x9.
If also using a cable/satelitte remote set it to 16x9 size, stretch format/aspect and 1080i output. then just press the # key on cable remotes or format key on Sat remotes to size it best on each channel.
with 16 formats available, today's TVs are doing their best to keep up.
hope this helps

Most HDTVs cannot properly stretch incoming HD signals, however, if the
programme is true HD, you should not much of the image off-screen -
most new HDTVs have about 2% overscan and the tickers should be on
screen when watched in the appropriate stretch mode.
Im sorry to hear of your difficulties but very happy to know im not alone. I have the same exact Sony model and the same exact problem. I wasnt sure if it was my Tv or my upconvert Sansung DVD player. I spoke with Sony assistance..and well..they were of no assistance. They blamed it on my HDMI cable, then the dvd's i was playing, then the dvd player itself. I ruled out all of the above. Mine goes black when i play a dvd in the upconvert format (720p or 1080i) otherwise known as digital..but the analog signal goes through fine. Luckily i am within my 30 days since I bought it, so now that I have seen your posting and am certain its a tv issue, I think i will return it and buy a Samsun tv (a great alternative for same price with only drawback being a glossy screen=not good for bright rooms but amazing color clarity). Sorry I dont have answer for the problem other than your not alone on this one. I have read other Sony users listing similar issues. I hope all goes well with you and wish you the best
