TV Out Overscanned with 8600 GT
I am running Ubuntu 7.10 on Acer 5920 laptop with Nvidia 8600 GT card.
everything works fine except tv out.
I am using TV out and connecting my normal(no HD) TV using S-Video out. The TV picture is overscanned and i am missing my panels and about 10 px from each side of the screen in 680x480 resolution.
now my same setup works fine with my HP laptop with 7200 GO video card.
i have tried different modelines, setting up 2 X servers through xorg.conf manually and using nvidia-settings utility...but nothing has helped...reading ubuntu forums i see other users are also facing similar isssues...
can somebody guide please!!
note: both of my laptop run ubuntu 7.10 and use the same drive nvidia-glx-new and the same version 100.xx.19... basically everything is the same except for different video card...
thanks in advance.
