    Of course, they don't have to turn off underscan, only if they want users to have a screen that is not broken... ;-)



    Well, the last time I tried, you could still do

    ... and if you DO know enough to disable overscan, you STILL lose part of the screen at boot. (In my UEFI setup at least, being displayed in 720p on my 1080p monitor, you need to scroll around to get...

    I think it is. ;-) Having to run UEFI setup in 720p with a black border on my 1080p monitor is annoying and I did go through the trouble of disabling overscan on the monitor.

    You also need to...

    I agree completely that the vBIOS default is sensible, for the reasons that you mention. The problem is that there is no way to change it. My monitor and my TV both overscan by default but have...

    Yes, it would be fun if the recommended way to fix this problem would be for people to install Linux (if only temporary) to twiddle a bit in the vBIOS... :-)

    I don't know how I can make this any clearer. The trouble is not with the drivers. The trouble is with the vBIOS which does overscan-compensation by default with no way to permanently disable it. The...

    The Catalyst and the open source drivers are identical in this respect. They both allow you to disable the overscan-compensation when the OS boots. This doesn't fix BIOS setup/UEFI setup/GRUB etc,...

    It's ON by default, i.e., on power up. The driver lets one disable this behaviour but BIOS setup/UEFI setup/GRUB etc remain broken.

    My only wish: an option to permanently disable the freakishly annoying HDMI overscan-compensation. This should be easily doable by setting a bit in the vBIOS. That's all. Thanks.
  11. And to me. This...

    And to me. This broken-by-default-with-no-way-to-change-it behaviour is ridiculous. It should be a jumper setting. Or a bit in the video BIOS. My monitor and my TV both overscan by default but have...

    Can someone more knowledgeable than me please comment on the significance of this:

    Thanks a bunch! I didn't know such things existed. Knowing what to look for I easily found this one:

    Do you happen to know of any others?

    I'm eyeing a PCI-based graphics card with a "Radeon HD 2400 Pro" (RV610) GPU on it for a completely F/OSS-compatible HTPC. Any guesstimate as to whether or not it too will have "enough shader power...
