Default Re: No "Overscan compensation" option in nvidia-settings

Others have told me that nvidia-settings is supposed to have a slider for overscan compensation, but mine does not. I have run apt-get install --reinstall nvidia-settings, but the slider is still not there.

Any ideas?
Check the settings in the TV itself. My TV (philips 47"), has an option for "PC" mode on the HDMI ports. If I set it to "PC" mode, there is no overscan at all, and it works like a regular flat panel monitor for a computer.
