    Depending on your TV settings & input options, you MAY get a better result using a DVI input to your TV:
    1) This may reduce the need for (de)selecting 'Overscan'
    2) You get an option to display 'dot-by-dot'
    Using my Pioneer Amp & HDMI ,on an HDMI input to a Sharp 1920*1080 LCD, the image is generally unsatisfactory. Bypassing the Amp (using a DVI>HDMI cable) and using a direct HDMI input is marginally better.
    Telling the TV that you are using a PC (Mac) & using a VGA/DVI input should produce the best image.
    Good Luck!
