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 ( 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. (shows the "Add" screen with the blue border.  clearly shows that its to the left.)

Please help!!  I don't know what else to do!

Thanks a million,


PS, its late, no Spell check..hope I did ok!

First boot a linux live CD/USB to find out if you have a hardware issue. Linux with open source drivers usually "just works".

You should also take more pictures, but at least one that shows a desktop or something recognizable. That unknown giant metro-like CCC page with a strange blue backlight is anything but informative.
