tv-out, screen too big..

I use nvtv to get my tv-out to work. The image gets on the tv screen, but the screen is too big. It's like I get the computer screens middle part only shows, kind of when you zoom a picture and cant see the corners.. I have tried to change resolution in x with ctrl, alt,+ -, but without any satisfying result. Any clues..?

hmm, sounds like your computer is trying to overscan... if you can figure out how to turn that off then that might help, i wish i could help more but the only time i've used a tv-out was with mac-os
