13 I guess this is the question to me:
15 Is the monitor doing overscan on HDMI?
16 or
17 Is the ATI driver doing underscan on HDMI based on the assumption that
18 the monitor will overscan?
20 Check if your monitor on-screen menu has overscan settings (or change
21 it to "PC Mode" or something, the manufacturers all have different
22 terminology). Otherwise if it has no settings you'll have to conitunue
23 messing with the ATI drivers instead.
