    I didn't notice this until recently. It looks like the edges of the screen got trimmed, and I'm only getting 90% of the original frame in what seems like a "zoomed" effect. ESPN/History channel logos gets cut off on the edge of the screen.

    Looked through the menu and couldn't find any way to adjust it. In the preview window I can see the edges are cut off the same way. When I change the TV to the letterbox mode it shows the same cut off edges, so it looks to be from the source. Any ideas?

    Yes, not enough info. Could be your tv settings or many other things. Try hitting the format * button on the bottom left of your Dish remote while in SAT mode, or PAGE UP/PAGE DOWN while watching live tv.

    LOL post exactly the same time. Try the format button, sounds like your issue.

    Agree with Wire Nut... the most obvious culprit to check first is the asterisk (*) button on the remote. It cycles through several zoom/grey/black bar format modes. You might be zoomed.

    Thanks guys. The format button was indeed it. Guess my family accidentally hit it. Dish is back to normal mode now.
