I have a freevo box using an nvidia card for tv out. It is working acceptibly good. One thing I would like to fix is this. On my 27 inch television, there is about a 1inch space of black above and below the picture. I would like to be able to stretch this image to fill the whole tv.
what is "overscan"? can that be used to enlarge my image on the tv? I don't mind if I lose a little of the picture on the left and right sides, so long as I get all of the tv screen filled vertically. Is there an option in my xorg.conf that would allow this?
If I understand you correctly, what you want to do is stretch out a widescreen move to fill up your 4:3 screen. Your movie player may be able to do this for you. In Xine, for instance, pressing 'a' toggles through aspect ratios.
