Overscan in TV-out (black border) in i915 (driver i810)

I am trying to get my "Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900" card's TV-out to work on my IBM Thinkpad.

So far I get a clear color picture, but I get the famous black border.

I can't seem to find any program or configuration to fix this (I tried many patches and configurations on xorg.conf, xvidtune doesn't change the right configuration settings).

Running Xorg7.
Driver i810 with DRI.



black, border, i810, svideo, tvout
