When my macbook is hooked up to an external display (I've tried an HDTV and a Projector thus far) it has a nasty habit of cropping the observable video. Typically, this isn't too large a problem, but when I'm watching something subtitled, I'll get cases where I can't read the first or last words of a line, which is annoying.
To further illustrate... maximizing a window on the ext. display will put all of my window controls out of observable range... So is there any way to fix this? I'd greatly appreciate any info.
Thanks,
Justin

This is a condition called overscan. It is a common problem that crops up when connecting computers to televisions. Sometimes there are ways to work around it by carefully reading the TV's user manual and using only the connections and settings designated for computer use. Sometimes there is nothing that can be done. I am linking to a thread that has more information about overscan, including an interesting historical perspective about why TVs overscan written by a poster named John Lockwood.
