Default Re: Why overscan problems exist, what is that about

Such a slider never showed up in my NVidia-Settings on any of my computers. Perhaps you are talking about the windows drivers. I'd like to see a screenshot. Perhaps this feature shows up only if NVidia Settings thinks the monitor is appropriate?

Also, the overscan options in xorg.conf did not have any effect. Believe my - I tried with several different cards using both the HDMI and DVI outputs.

Unfortunately, the NVidia drivers could not do it for my TV, by the ATI drivers could. I guess that that's what it really comes down to.
