How to get tvtime to fill my screen


Hy.
When using Tvtime to watch television i always get 2 black stripes on the left and on the right of the screen about 2 cm each, which is really annoying. Do you have any ideea how to fix this.. In the past when i was using some other distro.. (mandrake i think) things were just fine and tv was showing on the full screen. I'm using gentoo now. kernel 2.6.10

Here's tvtime output:

Running tvtime 0.9.12.
rtctimer: Cannot open /dev/rtc: No such file or directory
rtctimer: Cannot open /dev/misc/rtc: No such file or directory

Enhanced Real Time Clock support in your kernel is necessary for
smooth video. We strongly recommend that you load the 'rtc' kernel
module before starting tvtime, and make sure that your user has
access to the device file (/dev/rtc or /dev/misc/rtc). See our
support page at http://tvtime.net/ for more information.

...If it helps

The same problem occurs with mplayer but only with a very small part of my videos..especially those with a resolution aroun 3xx*3xx

I really could use the help. 10x

I think particulary this line is important. Any clues ?

videoinput: Width 768 too high, using 720 instead as suggested by the driver.tvtime: Sampling input at 720 pixels per scanline.
