    Intel HD graphics overscan issue

    Setup a biostar HTPC using the integrated Intel graphics on a core i3 (non sandy bridge) When using the HDMI port I am missing 2-3" on the left side and probably the same at the top.

    There are no setting for me to change anything on the actual tv, so I need some help trying to change xorg or something.

    I found these:

    But mythbuntu as xfce not gnome, so I am kind of at a loss.

    I'm not really sure "overscan" is the correct term but it seems to be what everyone refers to this issue as.

    Thanks for the help.

    Bad buy on the TV. What make/model is it?

    Those instructions were for nvidia. I am not sure if they will work for intel. nvidia has far superior support for such things.

    Yeah the tv was existing and a few years old.

    I actually got almost everything working fine under mythtv now. the resolution there is spot on, except for in some setup menus.

    Seems I'm either going to have to try VGA, or buy a seperate video card.

    there is a setting in mythtv to reduce the gui size, can't recall where it is and I am not near a myth machine now.

    Just wanted to reply back. never could get everything just right, the TV is the limiting factor. I dropped back to regroup, reinstalled using vga for video and 3.5mm for sound. Everything works like a champ now as far as video goes.
    Thanks
