    Maybe - but then I read once that the reason CRTs overscan so much was to do with marketing, as it was found that when next to other Tvs in a shop the ones that overscaned more were perceived to be bigger and sold better than the ones that didn't.

    Interesting. That might explain why so many modern TVs have the overscan enabled by default.

    Ah yes, it does say Toronto on your post. I'm over at 1CV.

    Our BIOS architect is named James. My first thought when I saw your username was "I wonder if our BIOS contact has the underscan problem on his TV ?"
