This TV screen & game HUD problem is now a KNOWN ISSUE on the official PSO2 Support website here: https://support.pso2.com/hc/en-us/articles/360043757054-TV-Aspect-Ratio-Issues It says the following: "Certain televisions may have issues displaying the entire game screen which causes the edge of the screen to be cut-off". So, I guess that I'll just have to be patient until a fix is found.
I believe some people did find a partial solution at least. Apparently, there is an option in the XBOX Settings that allows adjusting the Display Area. If you have it set at the outer corners of the screen like you are supposed to, it cuts it off in-game due to Overscan and a lot of TV don't have options for controlling overscan to make it not a problem. Setting the display area as small as possible, seems to make the game fit better on the screen without the edges getting cut off.
Firstly, thank you very much for replying & attempting to help me out. I appreciate it! Here is a link to the complete user manual for my TV: https://www.sony.com/electronics/support/res/manuals/2662/c9fe6a0fb550a66f60ce2ae1c4b564ec/26621991M.pdf I have determined that my TV lacks an Overscan setting. On pages 77-78 of the user manual, you can view all of the Screen settings of my TV. The following settings are grayed out & I can’t select them while using the TV’s remote control. The grayed out settings are: Game Picture, Vertical Center, Vertical Size. Also, under Wide Mode, the Normal setting is grayed out too. Regarding the Screen settings that are not grayed out (Wide Mode, 4:3 Default and Display Area), I’ve adjusted every single one multiple times in order to see if the display of the PSO2 open beta is not cut-off – but nothing worked.
Please note that I have a very large collection of Xbox One games that properly display their HUD/Screen on my TV. Therefore, this begs the following question: what is PSO2 missing/doing wrong that results in my TV not displaying this particular game’s HUD/Screen properly?
