    PC Display on 40" Samsung

    Hi,

    I have my PC hooked up to my Samsung 40" LE40A656 LCD TV using a DVI to HDMI cable. The picture is great, however, it doesn't utilise the whole of the screen size. I have it set to 1920 x 1080 resolution and there is a blank band all the way round the display. Are there any settings i need to check to resolve this?

    Thanks

    Steve

    Are you certain you are using the the HDMI port which has "PC Mode" function?

    what I tend to do is extend my desktop to the TV then fiddle with the resolution will it fits the whole screen, usually takes a couple of attempts

    You need to enable "Just scan" in the TVs menu to get 1:1 pixel mapping

    Thanks for the replies guys but found out what it was. ATI cards have an "Underscan" option and this was set below the normal as default. Reset it to 0% and voila. Perfect.
