View Full Version : [ubuntu] HDMI overscan on Zotac Zbox into both Samsung or Sharp TVs

Hi there, I'm running 16.04 (both ubuntu and xubuntu versions) from a zotac zbox, I'm trying to set it up as a media machine beside my tv, and the only output is display port or HDMI. I have a significant problem with "overscan" and have been attempting to resolve it with xrandr. I found a post that suggests to try transform, however that only brings the left hand side menu and the top menu bar into view, while still having the right hand side and bottom of the screen cut off. I tried adding the -fb with different numbers but was getting an error that says that the resolution option isn't there. Can anyone provide any hints. I believe it's an nvidia chip that's doing the graphics, and I've tried the latest nvidia drivers, as well as putting the nvidia-x-server settings software on, but there is no overscan slider in it.
