ISTR that with the newer Nvidia drivers, one can adjust overcan.  I have
190.42 and I can't find an overscan setting in nvidia-settings.  How do
I go about fixing overscan?  I'm also running 0.22-fixes.



I don't get this thread, if you are using 190.42 then the global overscan correction should be there in the nvidia setting GUI 
towards the bottom of the options, possibly under "TV-0".   There is a overscan compensation slider which IMHO is better than the 
myth correction because it covers the desktop as well.  I'd be interested to hear if its not there!

Do you know if the nvidia-settings GUI can be run from a VNC session to the front end box.  My current setup is front end and back 
ends.  I can't just use ssh -X nvidia-settings remote.  I'd have to connect a local keyboard and mouse.

I'd rather fix with the newest nvidia driver that apparently has the options to fix over scan rather then adjusting pixels etc.. 
within MythTV


I use VNC without a problem to see the GUI.
