hey all,

yesterday i started building an htpc on a gentoo base. i'm using this hardware:

- 46" sharp full hd lcd tv
- point of view ion 230 (connected via hdmi)

when it comes to set the display resolution for the framebuffer i use the foillowing kernelparameter in grub:

kernel video=uvesafb:1920x1080-32,mtrr:3,ywrap

so far uvesafb is using the 1080p resolution in the console/framebuffer. but it also produces a black border (margin) around the console.

is there a way to avoid the underscan? i doublechecked the settings of my tv to be sure it is set to the pixel2pixel setting.

as far as i can remember the xbmc live distro doesn't show this issue!? if yes, how is it solved there?
