Default How to use OverscanCompensation setting introduced in 190.36

I am using the new 190.36 drivers and when I go into nvidia-settings I cannot find any setting for overscan compensation. So I assumed that it could only be set from the command line. When I tried that I get an error:

nvidia-settings -a OverscanCompensation=100

ERROR: Error parsing assignment 'OverscanCompensation=100' (Unrecognized attribute name).

Is my syntax wrong? Or am I going about this completely wrong? What is the correct way to use the new OverscanCompensation attribute?

Are you using the correct version of nvidia-settings? You should use the one that came with the driver. Which reminds me -- I forgot to upload the source code to freedesktop.org. I'll do that now.

Yep, that was the problem. I was using a third party repository to get nvidia drivers, but they weren't packaging nvidia-settings, so it was falling back to the 180 version in the standard repositories. Getting the correct version of nvidia-settings fixed things.
