Scaling Problem

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well I just bought a 1920 x 1080 HDTV to for my ps3/use as a duel screen. I hooked the TV up and it was way over scaled. I went to nVidia Control Panel and looked for the scaling option. I looked and looked and never found anything. This is really annoying because it cuts off of the borders of the desktop. If you guys know a solution or a program to scale the desktop it would really help. Thanks.

This is an Overscan (vs Underscan) issue.

First off, read your new HDTV manual to see if the TV contains a feature to adjust/compensate for this. It should have such a function. Most newer HDTVs have.

If not, try using various HDTV's scaling feature (eg ''Just Scan'' term used by Panasonic, LG and Samsung?, ''Exact Scan'', "1:1"...etc which you should be able to choose from a menu)

If not, fiddle around with various Input/Source (eg using the designated PC Inputs).

So, you mean now 3 sides of the screen show properly but only the left edge does not?

Which HDTV model you are using?
How is the card connected to the HDTV? From which output of the card to which input of the HDTV? Only a cable is used or an adapter is used as well?


1. try a few recent Nvidia drivers
2. try to use a Custom resolution created within Nvidia Control Panel
