Monitor sizings, 27.3, poor power supply regulation, etc....



I attended a local SMPTE meeting last night where monitor sizings were
discussed at length.
It was determined that setting SAFE ACTION to the edge of the visable
screen results in a 10% overscan, and SMPTE wants 5% overscan. Sony
was stating that the evergreen monitors cannot do 10% overscan without
power regulation and spot size/geometry degradation if scans are
increased (with a Sony mod that they do not recommend using) to 10%
overscan. 

A 5% scan increase overloads power supply???

Some people at meeting had called around tHe country and found that most
everyone is setting monitor sizes based upon 10% overscan == SAFE ACTION
to edge of visable screen.   
I kept sounding like a call in the distance:  "Then how do you set
monitor sizes???" ........
So, without starting too much of an arguement, and with the known fact
that some monitors cannot do a 10% overscan:
HOW DO YOU PRESENTLY SET MONITOR SIZES, AND DO YOU KNOW WHAT PERCENTAGE
OF OVERSCAN YOU ARE USING?
