Video, Screen Overscan (Again,sorry i know)

Post by kornyman » Thu Aug 26, 2004 4:30 pm

Hello!

I have problems to fit my tv screen. All voc and hov settings with "videoselect" were made, but there is no perfekt screen adjustment with 640x480 either with 800x600...
Then i tried to fix the screen with different fbset settings...but nothing worked.
What i don't understand, that the black edges, after a fbset resolution change and editing the XF86Config were the same as bevor...
it seems for me that the hoc and voc parameters in the linuxboot are always on!?
Why?
How could this problem fixed? Some time ago i found a link, to a website
where it was explained in detail, how to change the resolution to 768x567..
but after 2 hours of searching i gave up...anybody who knows the link?
Thank you

That's a very strange resolution, why do you want to set it to that? DVD resolutions are 720x576 for PAL or 720x480 NTSC
If you keep an open mind, will your brain fall out?

then 720x576...:-) i thought 768x576 is a possibility too, because it's the normal (analog) PAL resolution.
