I have a Philips Magnavox HDTV hooked up via a practically brand new DVI to DVI cable that when hooked up to my normal acer monitor works with out a hitch.
The problem is that the screen is off center. I guess by about 2 inches. I thought it was under/over scanning. Spent way to much time trying to figure out why I don't even have an under/over scanning option in my CCC. My only conclusion is that it would be available if I was using HDMI instead of DVI ?
I have found a few different regestry changes but absolutly none of the values or keys matched my system. It may be because all the reg edit options I found our about 2-4 years old. On this page (http://josiahmanson.com/prose/overscan/) I was able to search and find "TVEnableOverscan" but could not find "DigitalHDTVDefaultUnderscan" setting enableoverscan to "0" had no effect.
After all the research I did with the scanning, and playing around with HDTV Modes under "HDTV Support" in CCC I have come to the conclusion that I am having an alignment problem, and not a scanning issue. I can use the "Add" window to tweak the screen size, but it is to the left, and I can't find an option to move it to the right. Only make the display bigger or smaller.
I have tried all frequencies and screen resolutions I have available. I've uninstalled and re installed CCC, and all monitor drivers.
I have gone up and down the settings on the tv, and there is no alignment options. I have also googled the hell out of it and can't find anything.
Am I going in circles? Is there no alignment options? Are alignment options only for CRT displays? Is this a DVI issue? Is there a third party program or application that will allow me to modify my horizontal alignment? Should I get a dvi to composit cable? Should I get a standard VGA cable and use a dvi to vga adapter?
I took 2 photos, and can't figure out how to attach them.
