It sounds like it. What is the screen size of the set and what is the video source when the measurements are made?

I wouldn't worry too much about the physical size, as long as the overscan is even on all 4 sides, and linearity is good (circles are round, etc..) The only time you may want to measure is in Normal mode, where you may want to set an exact 4:3 ratio. To be honest, you can cheat and make it wider, with less overscan on the sides than the top. On the other hand, there can be garbage and other useless junk at the extreme edges. Generally, less than 2% won't really reveal anything useful.
