If you have this setting in the TV, and set it to "PC", rather than AUTO, the Mitsubishi will not attempt to scale the picture (I think what you are experiencing is overscan), and will display exactly what the computer sends it. The "PC" mode setting bypasses the scaler in the TV, and changes the Type of signal the TV will accept.
A PC signal (computer video signal) is not interpreted the same as an ATSC/NTSC/PAL signal, through most HDMI inputs on consumer electronics.
If/When you have a setting in your TV that allows for a personal computer input, the terms 1080p, 1080i, 720p ect... are not truly the signal types that a computer is sending, as these formats are television signals, not computer signals. Even though the resolutions are the same (1080p = 1920 x1080 @60hz), the TV interprets the signal differently when it is capable of accepting/differentiating a true computer graphics signal.
A computers video card may be able to send a television signal, but that is not the best alternative when an actual PC video signal can be sent to a monitor, because the monitors scaler is bypassed with a PC signal. The CE industry loves 1080p, and uses it generically for just about any 1920 x 1080 source, but as stated above, is not exactly correct for a computer outputting display graphics.
The tv is pretty new. it is 3d capable too.
I could not see a pc mode however.
I will look into adjusting overscan with the driver in nvidia control panel.
thank you for the great information =]
