My settings all tracked with yours, except for my SD Override which was set to Stretch. I altered that to match your 480p, but no luck.  One thing I am noticing tho, is that when I change one of these settings, nothing is changing on the screen.  For example, I changed TV Type (with my remote, BTW) to letterbox, the screen did not change.  Ugh.  Looks like a call to Customer Support.  Thanks, Atomic.

Just saw your last reply.  My Sony HDTV (wega) is set to Full but I have to check on Overscan.  Not sure where to access that.

OK.

 

Like I said, my updates to Settings do not appear to have any effect on the screen, so I'll be calling Customer Support.  Thanks again for you time and help, Atomic.
