I don't know if this happened to anyone else, but my screen was cut off when on the Wii U, and no other device of mine did that. It was pretty annoying. Luckily I figured it out.
Now, I don't know the settings on anything other than a Panasonic Viera TV, so you're out of luck if you don't have one of those. Sorry. :P (Although I have heard of some type of Overscan feature on Samsung TVs)

All you have to do is press Menu > Picture> Scroll down to Advanced Settings> Switch HD Size from type 1 to type 2.

Don't know if this helped anyone, but I'm glad to know that the screen size really IS adjustable, you just have to mess with the TV, not the Wii U.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

Yeah... it just depends on whether or not the tv has the option to fix it... there should just be an option on the Wii U since it's such a common problem. It was a problem for me on my old tv, but not anymore...

Yeah one of my TVs has the option to correct overscan, but my other two don't. It's especially annoying if I adjust the Miiverse settings to shrink the screen size and I want to record gameplay, then I have to scale it up to 100% but then it's cut off, but the actual footage is just the right size.

If you have a Toshiba TV you can set the screen size to FULL to fix the overscan issue.

The same happens on ps3, but games usually have a screen size option to adjust, the overscan issue isn't anything new but it seems strange that games on WiiU don't give you a screen size altering option as standard.

Games make a great console, not technical specs.

Yeah, my Samsung TV does this when you switch from the Wii U to Wii mode. There's a Picture Size button on my remote that lets you scroll through different options. 16:9 works best for Wii mode, Screen Fit works best for Wii U.
