This isnt a simple overscan issue...It isnt clipping a couple of pixels....Its a larg portion of the screen that i cannot see.

For LG sets, here's some stuff to try: 


Depending on your graphics card and how the TV identifies itself, you might be able to adjust overscan in software from the nvidia settings utility.

Changing the input of the HDMI cable has no effect. And I do not have a setting to disable overscan.... Its an LG TV if that helps at all in this.

Sometimes one of the inputs on the set is labeled DVI/HDMI1 or so. Make sure you're on that input. Also there is a setting to disable overscan in the menus sometimes too.

If you are connecting via HDMI, try another HDMI input. I had the same issue between HDMI inputs 1 and 2 on my 1080p Samsung flat panel.

I just setup my mythbuntu installation and the frontend is working great however when i exit out of the mythtv frontend application, the screen looks like its too big as I have no task panel and an icon towards the top left that is getting cut off. 

How do I go about fixing this? 

My television supports 1080p
