Description

Playback of movies does not fill the screen space. There is around 3px lost in both horizontal and vertical ends.
During playback, I have to use the zoom option to expand picture to its ends. Usually move from 100% to 103% .

I think you need to modify the horizontal and vertical underscan in "settings -> display and user interface"

#2 Updated by Ajith Thampi about 10 years ago

Nope, that does not work. From what i see, Changing the underscan to negative or positive makes changes only to the showtime user interface.

The issue here is that the playback (movie) does not fill up the entire screen on playback. I have to go to zoom and change 100% to 103% for the exact fit. This is consistent across all movies that I have played so far, ie.100 atleast.

I cannot find any settings that keeps the zoom default at 103% to fix this issue. Playing on a 59" TV, and do not want it to playback at less than 58". Every inch is valuable! :)

I see that if I change the 'Video Playback Settings', I can save the zoom settings to 103% for future video playback. But I still think this is a bug, unless no one else is facing the same issue.

This is known issue. The video should fully overscan. I believe this is how the ps3 player does it.

This is wrong statement by me. I don't see a way to save the zoom changes for future playback.

I also would like a function to save the ZOOM state at 101%. Every time I watch a movie I have to change it from 100% tot 101%. Otherwise I get a 1 pixel border around. Why doesn't it rememeber the setting?
