Sony WEGA 42 - Border with PC Input

    Does anyone out there use a Sony Grand WEGA 42 LCD Projection screen
    with a PC feeding into the VGA (15 pin) input ?

    I'm using a Sapphire X1600Pro AGP card, which seems to detect the screen
    properly, and show all of the modes it supports. And it shows a
    beautiful image. The only problem is that it leaves a 1" ring around
    the entire picture,

    Has anyone come across this? I can't figure it out. I've tried every
    output resolution and I get the same ring.

  2. Have you tried changing the refresh rate?

    The card detects and sets 60hz without allowing another option, which
    the Sony manual says is the correct setting. It's a pretty smart video
    card, it even comes up telling me the name of TV (Sony WEGA) in the ATI
    config screen.

    I don't know what the Sony does but the Samsung has some aspect/zoom
    settings. In SD you can pillarbox, stretch, etc. In PC or DVI there are
    2 choices Wide (TV) or Wide (PC). Wide PC 'underscans' and leaves the
    ring around the border. This is needed when actually running
    applications so you can get to the edge buttons. Check the possible
    'zoom' or 'aspect' choices on the Sony.
