Sony 30XS955 and Overscan

01-30-2006, 12:03 PM
I'm thinking of picking up a 30XS955. My main use for it right now is with the Xbox 360. I've heard that this model has been known to cut off the sides of the picture. Is this definitely a problem with the set? If so I may reconsider buying one. I don't want the picture getting cut off when playing videogames.

I don't have a Sony. I'm sure there is some way to resize the picture, but you may need to go into a secret Service Menu or something. Hopefully someone else with a Sony can respond with details.

I've done extensive picture resizing on my Toshiba 30HF85. You can even change the picture size for the different modes (normal screen, widescreen, zoom on, etc) to try to get rid of "fat face" at the expensive of cutting off the tops and bottoms, etc, at your discretion.
