Image through HDMI not taking up my whole TV screen..

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Ok. So I have a 720 TV that I plan on using as a monitor for my media pc. For some reason, it won't output to cover the entire tv screen. It leaves a black border. Now, if I make the resolution too small, it will overfill the screen. But I can't find any resolution that will fill the screen correctly... I have tried 1080, 720, and lower. Any of the reses that are available I have tried. My drivers are all up to date, and I tried uninstalling and redownloading. I have this ASRock 880GMH/USB3 R2.0 mobo. It is outputting through HDMI to a Samsung 720p TV. Any help would be great! Thank you so much!

go to nvidia control panel and go to adjust desktop size and postion and should let you set your own resolution
comes as a square with arrow in either corner with slider at bottom

If it's an AMD/ATI GPU, you need to adjust the scaling option to overscan (found in Catalyst Control Center) so that it will fill the full screen.

like he said, for whatever stupid f'ing reason ATI defaults to a 15% underscan, and its REALLY annoying!

I can't seem to find anything about overscan in the Catalyst Control Center.. Are you sure that's where it is? I checked Desktop and Displays, and hit the triangle and then went to properties, where it brought me to Desktop Properties. Then it gives a list of resolutions. Nothing there says overscan. God. I'm feeling so stupid right now not being able to get this to work! mad.gif

You won't find it because you don't have and ATI card. Try this link

Also on my LCD I can pick 4:3, Zoom and 1:1. Make sure its set to 1:1

He's using his media PC which does have an AMD card.

Yeah. Sorry for not making that clear. I am NOT having problems with my sig rig, rather my media pc. I just figured I would get clearer help from hear vs the HTPC section. My board has an onboard Radeon HD 4250
