Apple TV sending the wrong signal?
I am running it through an HDMI cable to my Pioneer Elite TV.
For some reason, whenever I switch the tv over to apple tv, it turns my tv to a zoom mode where I need to manually switch the tv back to normal screen size. I don't have any other equipment running to the tv via hdmi that does this.
I just received apple tv for Christmas, so I'm guessing its the newest version...if that matters.

I would open a case with Apple support. I am sure one of the first questions they will have is the make/model of your TV.
This is just pure speculation (hehe, we're on an internet message board..LOL) but I personally think that the ATV2's implementation of a particular HDMI spec is causing a range of problems across many different TV models.
I think as they gather more data on affected TV models, they will have a better chance of solving the problem.

Can you specify the output on the current model ATV? On my older-gen ATV, I could specify anything from 480i to 1080p.
Maybe it's outputting that 480, like another poster suggested and this is causing your TV to think it's a letterboxed image and trying to exapnd it to fill the screen.
Regardless though, I am sure your TV has an option to turn off this autozoom.
It doesn't autozoom for your other content/boxes? DVD? BluRay? Cable or sat?

I believe that the recent Pioneer plasma TVs will detect black side bars even when receiving 1080p. The idea would be that a cable or satellite provider is sending 4:3 content embedded within a 16:9 broadcast, and the TV would automatically zoom to fit. This could happen on an old show, commercial, etc.
I've also seen the behavior during a Blu-ray session with something old like Star Trek TOS. With autozoom enabled the TV will go ahead and fit this to the screen despite the fact that it's receiving a 1080p signal.
I can't say that I've seen the detection fail, but I honestly don't intentionally use it either.
