Just got an Infocus Powerview 820 recently, and it has really nice colors and nice response time, but when I hook it up to my dvd player it displays the picture in the center of the screen with black bars all around the picture.

It looks like the picture has been shrunk into a square at the middle of the screen. I thought dvds were about 720x480 resolution, and this panel is 800x600. So why is it that the image is compressed if the resolution of the panel is higher than the output of the dvd?

The picture quality seems compressed or scaled down or something. Is there any way I can have the dvd display on the panel in its actual unmodified full resolution like the way it looks on a computer?

Example of what i mean: (this is the actual panel on the overhead hooked up through s-video)

opo terser, Hi, I could be totally wrong but it has always been my understanding that analog NTSC Signal is 640i. This would account for the smaller picture in the Powerview window. Also, have you checked in the setup menu of your DVD Player Menu? With no disk in the player, go to your DVD Menu/Settings and see what type TV your sending your signal out to. Some menus have Full Screen or Letterbox Screen options there. You just have toplay with settings sometimes. Hope this Helps -
