--- Comment #59 from Kevin Brace <kevinbrace at gmx.com> ---
Regarding the top getting chopped off, is there a setting that allows you to
adjust the aspect ratio of the picture being displayed?
I know that I have had this issue when I displayed the HDMI signal coming out
of VX900 chipset with one 720p HDTV.
Unfortunately, this TV can change the display aspect ratio via a setup screen
that can only be reached by entering it from the remote control.
It was an abandoned TV (and 100% working) and the previous owner did not leave
the remote control with the TV.
