was slightly confused when the 23" came up with a large black border. On a
quicksilver the 23" is perfect.
I came to the conclusion the the PB was optimising its video for the
preferred display (the PB's) and the 23" was just having to fall in line.
I can only assume in your case that the Quicksilver is optimising itself for
the 23" and the Sony is having to accept a non-optimised video signal.
Connect the Sony by itself and the G4 optimises the video for it correctly.
In other words Apple firmware prefers Apple hardware.
