I checked the setup and I can find nothing that appears to affect this.
Is your Sony a conventional "squarish" television (4x3 ratio) or a more rectangular (16x9) one? I think a 32 inch set would be a 4x3 one but am not certain; they make 30 and 34 inch 16x9 models currently.
By "depth", do you mean the height (top to bottom)?
I think what is happening is that you are trying to watch widescreen material on a conventional television but am not sure. If this is the case, is what you see similar to what you see when you watch a wide screen DVD on it? If so, this is normal as the material is made to fit a 16x9 wide screen, not an old fashioned 4x3 one. Not sure if you can do much about it unless some setting in your setup can attempt to adjust for this. Your Sony is made for regular channels (4x3), not widescreen ones if I am understanding you correctly.
The line at the top may be related to the overscan.
