...The TV has about 1" missing (cut off) on each side (top,bottom, left and right) I'm using a s-video lead and I have a Phillips 28" LCD HD TV.
Ive adjusted my TV screen sizes and looked in my nvidia control panel but no luck. How can I get the TV image to fit in the screen area?

o.k this is starting to get annoying, Ive checked every setting I can think off still my TV image is cut trimmed round the edges, I put the ratio on 4:3 so I can see black lines down the left and right of my TV and the image is still cut, its got to be something to do with the settings on the GPU

you need a hdmi dvi lead mate svideo was crap even on anolouge tv's

on hdtv it is worse your computer is outputting a hdtv signal your tv is hd just there is a crap standard defintion cable between them

dvi hdmi or vga maybe component is the way to connect your computer to your hdtv

I think s-video will only carry standard definition pictures ( pretty sure the max I could get my old radeon to output to TV over s-video was 1024x768 , which I know isn't a tv res but it would still do it ) so you are probably only seeing part of the image your card is producing .

What happen if you take the res down to 1024, 800 or 640 widths ? Do you get the full picture then ?


Anyway its kind of redundant as others have said you should be using dvi, hdmi or component for the best results .
