Default Re: Artifically limiting usable resolution in X or WM to compensate for overscan?

Is that active for all output connections, and work to reduce (and not just increase) overscan? If so, that really is a new and very exciting feature. I know that it exists for svideo output, but that's been there for ages.

I'll check up on that immediately, thanks.

EDIT:
Seems that I'm running the latest 190.42 drivers, but there's no overscan control for DVI output. Any thoughts on another means to crop the usable screen area?

Thanks!
