    I just got this new card, and it overscans my HDTV - pretty bad.
    The display driver 97.02 have a resize feature, however when I am resizing it, it fits the corner arrows to the screen. But as soon as I click OK, it goes back to overscanning.

    I cant get it to work.
    Nor does the control panel have any overscan compensation option.

    I am using a HDMI to DVI cable to connect and resolution is 1920 1080.

    Can anyone help me fix this?

    Thanks


    TV - 60" Sony XBR2 projection


    I was reading the guru3d review where they mention this overscan and some fix, and I have no idea waht they said since i cant find the options they listed.

    nvidia said there will be a new driver with enhanced support for the 8800 soon, so it said in the DH review....maybe that's what they meant?

    Their drivers are sucking as all do when a new product comes out, particularly a whole new architecture. Frankly, on my ATI card powerstrip is the only thing that works as ATI CCC sucks balls for hooking up to my TV via VGA.
