Default Request: Aspect ratio finetuning on TV-out

On Windows I can scale the TV-out screen X or Y as well as set position so it perfectly fills my TV.

In Linux I can only set a zoom value (overscan) which means I can choose between having small black bars on the top and bottom edges or crop away the left and right edges...

Have I missed something or is this functionality missing in the Linux drivers?

So you prefer distorted aspect ratio to letterboxed video?

Belegdol, I think you don't understand what Tuxie means. He doesn't talk about fit an 16:9 video to a 4:3 TV or something like that but fine tuning the ratio for TV. On my TV too an 4:3 resolution doesn't exactly fit to my 4:3 TV, maybe due to the conversion between different TV standards? I loss about 1-2 cm on the top and bottom edge if I don't want to cut the left and right. (27 inches TV)

So I think Tuxie have a good request, I am interested too.

Heh, bump.

Old thread, still same problem.

My Monitor and TV both have 4:3 - but the picture on the TV is displayed 16:9
Not only when I watch a movie, but also the normal desktop.

EXACTLY that.

Card is a PCIe 7200GS with 100.14.19 drivers, connected AV->scart

Before that I had a FX5200 AGP connected s-video->scart - that one has not that problem, even with the same driver version.

So is this a hardware or a driver issue?
