Clipped edges in FIOS TV Picture


I have a FIOS HD set-top box (It's labelled "Verizon" no the front, and a Panasonic Veria TH-42PZ77U flat screen. The manual says it's HD ready, and  it has HDMI, S-Video, Component, and Composite connections on the back. WHen I'm watching SD TV it clips about 3-4% on each side of the picture. It does this (or more) on every aspect ratio I try.

Anybody know a fix for this?

Thanks in advance.

First make sure your TV is connected with HDMI or Component cables to the STB since these are the HD cables. Next on the STB go to the Menu-Settings-Audio & Video-Video Settings. Video Format should be 1080i 16:9. SD overide set to stretch. TV type is 16:9. Graphic Settings should be HD. Lstly on your TV you need to adjust your aspect ratio to 16:9 and adjust your picture size to whatever setting fills your screen. If you still have a problem most TV have a manual setting to adjust the viewable screen area.
