new netflix cuts off the sides

Postby Dorrell » Thu Jun 03, 2010 9:25 am

friends,

i wanted to start a new thread on this subject. others have hinted around to the problem. i'm experiencing this as well.

with the new netflix update - about an inch on the left and right side are cut off.

i have an HDTV (16.9) and i have the roku box set as "HDTV."

here is a sample of what i'm talking about - viewtopic.php?f=28&t=28463&hilit=netflix+cuts+off&start=165#p178198

any tips or help? thanks in advance :)

Most TVs have a "Picture Size", "Picture Mode", "Format" or "Zoom" setting that allows you to control this. Many remotes have a direct button to cycle through these settings. Others require you to navigate the TV menu to find these settings.

I needed to modify the "Overscan" setting on my TV for the input that the Roku box is connected to. I dropped the overscan by one point and it interface fits the screen pretty well now.
