    I've been using my TV as a dual monitor for well over a year now. Right now I'm using my second laptop to power it, but recently the resolution got screwed up. When using the native resolution (1920x1080; 47") instead of filling up the whole screen, it centers itself on the monitor, but aligns to the right. Right now I have about a 1" black bar to the right and a 6" black bar to the left (I estimate about 52 and 312 pixles). The alignment is also slightly low, but that much I can fix by manually adjusting the screen.

    An auto adjust adjusts the screen all the way to the right, but that doesn't fix anything since I now am more off center. Also, if I adjust the resolution to any other setting (other 16:9 ratios), it fills up the whole screen (in essence fixing the alignment problem but leaves me with a lesser resolution).

    Anyone have any ideas how I can maintain my native resolution and still have full access to the monitor?
