Re: ATI driver causing underscan over HDMI - any fixes?
I have this very same problem, and have been searching for a solution for ages now. I've given up many times, only to come back to it again.
I had hoped that Ubuntu 10.10 would fix it, seeing as it now has abolished xorg.conf and does everything "automagically" - or not as is my case.
I can't even get the ATI Driver from the ATI website to install because I think it is not compatible with 10.10. I will crack on with this avenue of solution for now, until something better comes along.
My TV has no option to under/overscan and the input is already configured properly, else I would not see any image at all on my particular television (Toshiba Regza 42" inch).
I tried mucking about with xrandr, which didn't really help a great deal. I even tried adding a custom modeline, but couldn't get this to work. I will probably have another go at this at some point.
Does anyone have a cleaner more efficient solution?
UPDATE: Maverick Meerkat 10.10 uses X.Org 7.5 which is incompatible with the ATI Driver 9.3 for Linux x86 (ati-driver-installer-9-3-x86.x86_64.run) from AMD's website. This is why the driver will not install.
My search for a solution, that doesn't tell me its my TV that is at fault, continues.
