STK1AW32SC underscan - does not cover the entire TV screen

I have connected it to Panasonic 50" plasma. However I am facing underscan issue - the display output doesn't cover the entire TV screen. I get black borders of approx 1 inch on all the four sides.

I updated to latest drivers and it doesn't help. There are some advanced option but they are all empty and not sure what should go in there.

The bios is updated too. The CPU is Z8330.

Please help.

Look in the settings of your TV for options to change the display. For example, on my Toshiba TV changing the Toshiba "Pic Size" from "Natural" to "Native" solved the problem immediately and the Windows display was perfectly sized for the physical screen. When using a television as a monitor, it may be necessary for you to change this setting.

On the Toshiba, for example, the picture size options available are:

  • Natural
  • Theater Wide 1
  • Theater Wide 2
  • Theater Wide 3
  • 4:3 HD
  • Native

Your television should have similar settings.

Do you want me to change my TV setting which is otherwise works fine with all other devices like WDTV, Amazon Fire TV and my local STB.

Sorry, that's a bad idea. Pls suggest something which can be done on stick side.

Sometimes you have no choice but to change the monitor/TV settings.

It's not mandatory to answer if you don't know the answer. It's not even logical that when all device works fine with my tv, why can't this stick.

It is a possible solution to your problem. If you do not like it, do not use it.

You are a senior member, I had expected some sensible answer from you. Unfortunately, your 'solution' is not only thoughtless but then you are unnecessarily arguing on it and wasting time. Maybe I should specifically mention next time for you to not answer.

It would be unintelligent on anyone's part to adjust TV when it's working brilliantly with all devices but one. Naturally the fault is at sticks driver end.

Jeev,

In the absence of a driver that fixes this issue, Doc is providing you with a valid way to attempt to work around this issue. This is the only thing that I could suggest you do as well. If you do not like this workaround, you do not have to use it. Regardless, this does not give you the right to be belligerent or insulting in your replies. This is unacceptable; stop it now. Bad behaviour will not be tolerated.

Have the same problem on my Samsung TV. I edit the name in tools and set it to DVI PC and the screen flickered and adjusted the resolution. Don't really know what is happening and thanks god i am not messing up my TV.
