If you see black bars on the sides of your TV, most likely you have a widescreen TV with an aspect ratio of 16:9 and the signal your TV is displaying has an aspect ratio of 4:3.

The screen clipping is due to something called “overscan”. While most TVs automatically adjust the input image to fit your screen, some TVs can crop a small portion of the screen – around 2-5% – and stretch the remaining image to fit the screen. The solution for overscan depends on your TV.
