Viera TX-P42G20B: has always cut off either side of the TV

Resolved Question:

Viera TX-P42G20B: has always cut off either side of the TV picture, channel/zoom size makes no difference and switching overscan on / off does not cure it. No option to switch to HD V2 so far as I can tell - tried every option on the remote and nothing works.
Is there a "fix"?
BTW feed is cable TV from Virgin, if that makes a difference

Pete :

Hi there,

Pete :

Yes, the feed makes a difference.

Pete :

If changing the Zoom setting on the TV does not help, then you will need to adjust the picture settings on the Virgin cable box.

Pete :

If you have a TiVO box:

Pete :

  1. Select Help & Settings on the Home screen.

  2. Choose Settings.

  3. Select Video Output.

  4. You can now adjust different settings for your TV, including widescreen and picture format options.

Pete :

If you need any further assistance, just let me know!

Pete :

Best, Pete :)

I don't have TiVO, and the actual routine was slightly different, but your advice helped me fix an issue with which I've been putting up for years. Picture looks a bit "tall" now, but that's probably jus because become used to it being "stretched" in the past.

Thanks heaps, great advice and well worth the money!

Expert:  Pete replied 2 years ago.
