I dont think there is any setting to set visible or underscan area? unless I've missed it.

Default Re: HDTV Overscan compensation.

Has this issue ever been addressed? I recently installed Ubuntu 7.1 x64 and I have this same problem using an Nvidia 7800GT DVI-HDMI on a Sony 30" widescreen, model 30HS420.

I have tried numerous modelines and the Nvidia-settings has no HDTV compensation like in windows where you can adjust the underscan/overscan to properly fit the screen. I have this working perfectly in windows - why can't this work in Linux?? I really wanted to switch over but this is a HUGE obstacle.

Please help!!!

Add me to the list of people who can't believe there is no way to change the screen resolution to eliminate overscan. HDMI/DVI is no prob, but pretty much anyone who uses the nvidia component out (and probably svideo and composite also) with a CRT or CRT RP TV can not even see the GUI's task bar! Come on nvidia, this should not be hard to implement. As several others have mentioned, this is easily done in Windows (with powerstrip) and with most linux video drivers (via modelines). There are probably half a dozen ways to implement it (from easy but good enough to really elegant).

Please implement allow us to create custom resolutions for our component outputs so we can see our task bar and not have to fly blind.

Cheers,
Fred

*Bump*

This issue needs to be given a higher priority than it seems to have currently. It seems that this feature has lagged for years.

We have heard from nVidia that this feature request has been enhanced. We can only hope and pray that it will be implented in the next beta or release. Until then, Linux on dvi-hdmi CRT's remains non-functional.

Get this done already please, I hate being stuck like this, waiting...

I'm new to this forum. Does nvidia monitor and actively participate in it, or is it just the community helping each other out?

Nvidia actually sends you to these forums via their driver pages and there are Nvidia developers who post here regularly such as AaronP.

Thats why I hope that if enough people complain here, it'll get fixed.

Someone really needs to turn the screws on this "request." I can adjust overscan using the Windows driver just fine. I can understand a slight delay from Nvidia of getting the feature on Linux, but to ignore it altogether is not acceptable. Make it happen.

I don't think this will help, but FYI, my new HDTV has a function to turn OFF overscan from the TV side now. ie in the settings for the HDTV I can turn off overscan and therefore I can now see the whole desktop..
