Default Tvout does not cover entire screen on tv

Hi,

I am able to use the nvidia driver with TV out without any problem. The only thing is that the TV out does not cover the entire tv screen - i can see very thin black line on the top of the video. I am not sure how can I change my xorg.conf so that my TV out covers the entire TV screen - without the black line. Any help is appreciated, I have attached my xorg.conf.

This is a known problem and it is related to the working of TVs / tvout. Search this forum for topics about overscan. I have explained the issue there a couple of times and it is also mentioned what you can do about it. Though you will have borders in all cases. There's a tradeoff between borders and missing a part of the image.

Default Re: Tvout does not cover entire screen on tv

Okay, here is my problem when i do default init 5 the TV out does not cover the whole TV screen. But when I do default init as 3 and after that without executing any comman i just change the runlevel to 5 with /sbin/init 5 the TV out covers the whole screen and works fine without any problem. I want to be able to get the same results when I do default init 5. Any comments? Any Help would be appreciated - and one more thing when the default init is set to 5 what ever change i make in xorg.conf for TV over Scan does not have any effect on how much of the screen is being covered by the TV out. Please Help
