A fresh install of 12.04. I need to compensate for overscan, but the setting is disabled for one of my monitors. Not sure why and not sure what I can do aboot it. Is there any way I can enable the Overscan Compensation slider?

Can you give us the model numbers on the monitors and the graphic card(s)? – Matt Barnes May 13 '12 at 23:08
I was able to configure my HDTV to use its "native" resolution, instead of "theater" mode. It is a Toshiba. I still don't know the cause of the overscan disable on 12.04. – Luke has no name May 14 '12 at 7:54
sudo apt-get install nvtv

Then alt-F2 "nvtv" and then select monitors>overscan and then set it to 0
