  • How do I get underscan with radeonhd ???

    Hi Folks,
    after my long fight with fglrx I found a way get radeonhd running on my system (with xv acceleration).
    But 1 Problem is still left.
    MY TV makes some overscan what is extremly annoying when you use the Desktop. There is DEFINITELY no way to turn the overscan off.
    So here's the big Question.
    How do I get a fitting Desktop on my TV (Panasonic TH-42PV60EH).
    Lets say I want to run 1280x720_50 but the visible Frame is only 1200x680.

    Is there any way (my be with Xrandr and virtual screensize) ????

      I should admit, that xorg is a mystery to me.
      Sorry, but I can't find "--scale" in "man xrandr".
      Maybe I should tell you that I' using Debian Lenny which has Randr 1.2.
      In the Online Manpage of "xrandr" I saw the option. But it was for xrandr 1.3. Maybe it's not in 1.2 ?
      Is there probably another solution ?

        Disable scaling in your tv settings or buy a better tv

          Hi Kano,

          funny thing is ... I'm using your Repo.
          Maybe you could backport Xorg. (hahaha )
          Joking aside. Is there no other way to get rid of this overscan ?
          I got this running with fglrx but there were enough other Problems (tearing or VDR with opengl and no OSD).

          So I need to change to SIDUX or similar ?

            The OSD can be be easyly enabled with opengl, well some may call it tricky (because 2D_Tex_Fragprog does not work, the same for nvidia, no fglrx fault it seems):

            In ~/.xine/config

            Code:
            video.driver:opengl
            video.output.opengl_renderer:2D_Tex

              Thanks I'll try this.
              But I hoped to stay with the OSS drivers ;-(
              We'll see.
              Maybe next time I'm going to stress you right in your own forum ;-)

                Ok, OSD is working with the parameters you said.
                But fglrx stays (like always) unusable for videoapplications. There's always tearing. No matter what I adjust in ControlCenter.
                So I'm staying with radeonhd.
                So has ANYONE a hint howto "underscan"with a Xorg driver under Debian Lenny ?

                  You have to force vsync for opengl (quality mode).

                    You need a modeline with the timing adjusted to underscan.
