Well, I tried everything provided thus far and can't get rid of that "black block".
I'm thinking it's related to the monitor's aspect ratio (is that what it's called with computers?).
Anyway, I don't really care anymore, as I've managed to get a good image & stretching it to fit this monitor is no longer an issue so far as I'm concerned.
Thanks to everyone, product developers, EAB dudes, everyone! I've saved every file provided, so if I or anyone else ever needs them they are in my archive
