This is not the camera output that is adding the side black borders.
Tom, as I mentioned it's not just him, I have seen this effect on both TV's I've used my 808 #16v2 with. There is a small, but noticeable, pillow boxing of the 16:9 image within the 4:3 frame. I can only imagine that some units have less overscan or some displays are hiding a larger percentage of the sides in overscan.

So everyone cannot be appeased by what the camera is doing. It is what it is, and I don't think it can be changed with FW anyway, so I'd suggest trying to get used to it.
Thanks, that's all I need to know. I'll shut up on this topic now.
