I know this must be a common question, but my Google-fu has failed me. I have a 40PFL7705DV/F7. If I put my TV in "PC Mode", there is no overscan, but the colors are all washed out and look terrible. If I turn PC Mode off, the colors are good but there's overscan. I understand that PC Mode does less image processing and therefore has less lag. I appreciate the idea but I don't really care about lag. I'd just like to keep all the image processing on, and turn off overscan. (Why would a TV overscan a digital input by default??? It's guaranteed to look worse than a pixel-for-pixel output.)

I've been having this same problem for weeks and surfed the heck out of the menus to find a fix.

Turns out, hooking your pc up first opens several menu options. only when a pc is hooked up, under format(through the menu or format button on the remote) you can choose "unscaled". only when the pc is hooked up to the tv.
