  1. I would guess that your issue is with the HDTV. You need to provide the brand and model #.
  2. I would assume your TV cant do 1080P and so its doing teh best it can which would be 1080i
    The black band is down to the scalling options in the drivers or CCC.

  3. In CCC look for an under/overscan option. Set it to underscan, this will get rid of the black border.
  4. Sounds like the TV can't take 1080p...
  5. Also when I plug in my ps3 it says 1080p and also on the box(the box I got the tv with) it says it supports 1080p I guess I can live with it unless someone else has an answer thxs for the overscan option it got rid of the black box
  6. Brand and model Num: INsignia 1080p Lcd Tv- NS-26l-540A11
