If you watch a DVD from the player (for example the OPPO), the OPPO resizes 480 x 720 into 1080 x 1920, and the overscan does what I wrote above.

By the way if you have an OPPO and like Scope 2.35- 2.40 movies with less bars, you could also turn overscan off on the TV(engage 1:1) and then use the Oppo 1.2 zoom and Scope movies end up being about 2.00, near to 1.85 movies.
I was merely explaining to Chip that I had read this following statement from member Aramis here, who said this some time ago (but I suppose, based on Chip's comments and now yours, that he was wrong):

Overscan doesn't mean you're not getting 1:1 pixel matching. It just means that some of the image is hidden by the bezel.

I still prefer DVDs and Blu-rays with some overscan; can't really explain it save for the fact that I'm not really at an ideal seating distance from my display and it makes scope films, at least, "feel" bigger. At any rate, it's better than zooming the 2.35:1 or 2.40:1 image to ELIMINATE the letterboxing altogether, as that would DEFINITELY introduce distortion and loss of resolution...wouldn't it?

As for where I'd want the overscan to be applied, I'd rather just let the display handle this so I don't have to switch this setting on a disc-by-disc basis.

Update about my "Fit to Screen" setting on the Samsung NU8000:

I noticed last night, after resetting my TV's Movie picture mode back to factory defaults, that the "Fit to Screen: AUTO" option is now greyed out (probably since I connected my new Cambridge Audio UHD 4K disc player to the display)...so the only two available options when the screen size is "16:9 Standard" for Fit to Screen is ON or OFF...

Why is the Fit to Screen: AUTO now greyed out? Is this because the TV is receiving a 2160p signal from my new player, and AUTO is now not an option based on the signal it is sending?

Most likely that or the expanded HDMI signal.

Thanks Chip!

So the "expanded HDMI signal" is telling the display that there can't be an "auto" option? Can you explain why this would be in a little greater detail?

I also noted that Movie mode now defaults to FIT TO SCREEN: ON when reverting all settings back to factory levels -- in the past, it defaulted to AUTO if I am not mistaken...

Is this, also, because the display is seeing a 2160 signal and it "feels" there should be no overscan for content like this?

It depends on the signal, some resolutions limit the screen options, for HDMI 3840 x 2160p there's just 16:9 Standard and Custom.
