Image Magnified on AV Show

I would appreciate if somebody with a G2 camera can confirm this:

When displayed through the AV cable on a TV set, the image is 20-25% magnified. As a reference, when the camera is connected to the TV (AV-entry) and the Menu is selected, the rectangle of the menu is very close to the tv screen boundary. I have asked Canon about this and they claim that there should be no magnification. Went to the store to exchange the camera but the new one behaved in the same way. I am in Canada so I wonder if somebody can give me some feedback on both systems NTSC and PAL.

10x,
Andrew

I can't confirm, but I'd say it is probably by design. Methinks the TV and LCD would have different resolutions and aspect ratios, so what you see on the TV is possibly a best fit version of what usually goes to the LCD.

I'd still be interested to hear of others' thoughts on this. I'll give it a go myself later on.

The reason I post this is that on my previous G1 I got on TV the same information as on the LCD. Even If the aspect ratio is not the same, the NTSC/PAL convertor was sopposed to include the whole image, not to trim it. Anyway, thanks for replying, and waiting for your test results.

I just tried this (NTSC) and I do see a slight magnification (or cropping of outer extents)- probably 10% of image or so.
