But this bullet seems to contradict the previous bullet.  Strange

'Specially considering I am using 1280x720 and I don't get his supposed
"Native mode".  Now, I will say that the amount of overscan is quite a
bit less than a CRT.  So maybe this little bit of overscan that I do
have is what they consider "entire picture [being] within the borders of
the screen".

I should just phone them.
