Menu is larger than my screen

The Roku display (the content description or menu) is larger than my TV screen. Most of the left side of the menu is out my my viewing range. It's like watching a 16:9 movie on a 4:3 TV.

I know it is a display problem, but I cannot find a place to fix it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Which Roku? And how are you connecting the Roku to your TV? HDMI?

Many TVs have a ZOOM (or something similar) setting that can affect that. Mine, for instance, has three different settings. A previous TV had 4. Some made a difference, some didn't.

Re: Menu is larger than my screen

Have you tried unplugging and plugging the hdmi cable back in?
unplugged the roku-3 power and plugged it back in?
What video mode do you have the roku-3 in? And what kind of TV is attached to it? Is there an AVR there as well?
Do you retrieve the devid from the settings/system/about page and provide it? What firmware release are you on?

I've sent a PM to Newsman to get more information.
Is anyone else with a Roku-3 having similar issues and can provide additional information regarding your setup?
thanks

Re: Menu is larger than my screen

Ive had my roku express for about 2 months almost. My screen went big on me in the middle of watching a show. I saw the screen act like it was about to buffer and then noticed it looked different and now everything is out of frame. Can not find a fix.

Re: Menu is larger than my screen

Mine did it suddenly After an automatic update. I got it semi fixed by going into settings/display type. It was the auto detect that was messing ip so in my case I selected 1980. Home screen text on the left still much larger than it was before but if I hit the right side arrow then I can see everything again
