Ideally would be an option to manually adust X / Y position and size of video at pixel level.
From your example above, the image is displayed outside the SAFE AREA - a standard TV’s signal is overscanned. Actually, without realizing it, when you watch standard TV you are NOT seeing the full picture either, when you rent movies on DVD, same thing, there is some info lost in the overscan area. Which is why some editing software have what is called “SAFE AREA” border to allow you to edit your titles to remain in the safe viewable area - Same for film production, when monitoring on monitors they too see safe area borders.
At the movie theather the image is projected and you will see the entire image. On a TV, you are not seeing the entire image.
The WD Live is not cropping or zooming it is displaying the full image, much the same way your dvd player or a live cable broadcast is displaying full image and parts of it are cropped out. The reason it doesn’t appear this way with movie DVDs and cable broadast is because in post they keep their titles and subjects within the safe area.
Non CRT TVs (LCD, Plasma, OLED) work differently and will display an ENTIRE image.
If you plug the same output to an LCD you will see the FULL image displayed.
I think the WD Live or any other version, is meant especially for LCDs.
Yes I think WD should add an option to manually adjust H/V position & size much like you can do on a monitor.
That would be a great feature.
