Overscan issue with GTX 460 -Recommend me drivers to roll back to-

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Just built a new rig with a GTX 460 768MB. It's the Galaxy model with removable fan GC version. It's hooked up to a Panasonic Viera HDTV.

Overscan is causing a lot of problems. I can't find anything in the Nvidia Control Panel that fixes it. I can use the Custom Resolution feature in the Nvidia CP to create one that fits the screen, but games like SC2 still has the overscan problem.

The TV is a 720p native model that can do 1080i but not 1080p. Using the latest WHQL drivers 265.58 or something like that off the Nvidia site.

Also, 1080i only allows 30 FPS too, is that normal? I was expecting 60 FPS or 60hz.

Can you change the mode on the TV to native from widescreen?

My tv has the option to change the screen format. H-Fill, Just, Zoom, 4:3, and Full. I've tried using those different formats but the screen still seems to be cut off. Right now its customized to 1786x1004. Could this be a driver problem or a tv problem? Thanks.

Looks like it's a driver problem. Can anyone recommend me good driver versions to roll back to on my GTX 460?

In addition to the TV's ''Just, Zoom...'' various Aspect Modes, there should also be an ''Overscan'' function hidden somewhere, I bet.

Basing on my own Panasonic Viera, try:
a. Press Menu on the Remote Control Unit (the Viera Main Menu should come up)
b. Select Setup in the Menu
c. Under the Setup menu, do you see ''Picture Overscan'' ? If yes, make adjustment here.

I hope this solves your problem directly.

No go my friend.

Looking for good drivers to roll back to. Anyone have any recommendations?

Excuse me for being a little persistent with this HDTV adjustment.

I suppose you are inputting into the TV via its HDMI 1 , correct?

And, you have fiddled with the ''Picture Overscan'' feature (On/Off) and it was a no go?
Or, your Panasonic does not show that option in the Menu?

If it is the latter case, I suggest you to try this:
1. revert back to 1280x720 (720p) in Nvidia Control Panel
2. with the TV's (Input) Source set at HDMI 1, change the Aspect Ratio to "16:9" (avoid using ''Just'')
3. now, repeat the a,b,c steps outlined in my post above. The ''Picture Overscan'' option should now appear and you can adjust On/Off there.

BTW, what is the model number of your Panasonic Viera?

What's the model of the TV? Last 3-4 generations of Panasonic plasmas internally process everything at 1080p then scale down on 720p sets. If it's old it may just suck with PC input. Is the other HDMI port labeled DVI?

If you think it's drivers, just try any other that supports your card. No one is going to know a driver version that works with your TV+GPU combination.

if you tv has a vga port you should use it, also in some games if you use a custom setting you can just use that setting in the game, but I was never able to fix it so I switched to a regular monitor. Although with an ati card I never had that problem

I've given up on trying to fix this. VGA fixes the problem but has terrible color quality compared to HDMI.

I appreciate everyone's input. +Rep guys.
