    Hey guys, what's going on? I just got my 46inch Sony GTV on cyber monday and I'm ABSOLUTELY blown away by it so far, it's every nerd's dream and brings just an awesome amount of content that is so much fun to delve into...

    (also I play xbox almost every single day and canNOT replicate/feel the lag everyone is talking about, I played all my FPS's (COD/Bf3) and Fighting games (SF3, MVC3) and performed on the same level as I always do! (still keeping a feel out for it though)

    The only real problem I'm having is my PC hookup through HDMI-HDMI looks terrible! Mainly, it doesn't take up the whole screen. Is 1920x1280 just not fit for the GTV perfectly? It has black bars around the entire perimeter that my mouse cannot scroll to.
    Also, the quality is blurry and crappy.

    Any ideas how to optimize this?

    thanks in advance!

    Best thing to do is alter the display resolution on your computer so that it is running 1920x1080, so it matches the native resolution of the television screen.

    Aye of course....I thought it was a given that I had the display settings for the computer at 1920x1280...this is where I'm having the problems, on this resolution

    Found the "overscan option" through the ATI catalyst control center and fixed it right up! Thanks!
