Default Picture exceeds actual display on one of two DFPs... DVI->HDMI

Hello!

For a while we had two very different LCD-displays connected to this computer and things were working properly.

We now replaced the older display with a shiny new one and the picture on it is annoyingly wrong: all four edges can not be seen as if the picture is bigger, than the actual screen...

The troublesome monitor (DFP-0) does not have a DVI-connector and connects via a DVI->HDMI cable. The older (DFP-1) connects with a regular DVI-cable and "just works". They are the same size and come from the same manufacturer. The native resolution of both is 1920x1080 and the MetaModes settings in my xorg.conf says: "1920x1080,1920x1080".

The two monitors are identified as (full Xorg.log with verbosity set to 9 is attached):

How do I force the DFP-0 monitor to show full picture properly? Or is DVI->HDMI conversion somehow responsible? Thanks!
