any modern HDTV would allow such adjustment (or should;) but mine does not.
It's not too bad, I can certainly live with it.  I don't notice the

picture (like you can on a typical computer monitor).  I seem to recall
being able to do this through the nvidia driver on a windows machine, but I
think that was my workstation (at work) that has a QuadroFX 3000 card.  I
tried doing something with nvidia-settings, but I didn't see anything.  Any
