I'm new to this but my problem is that I am trying to connect my Panasonic TC-L32X2 TV to my ASUS BD3MA Laptop through HDMI, because my xbox is occupying my VGA port, and even though it supports 1080p through the HDMI cable, it seems to be giving me Overscan and unlike in windows, I can't seem to find a way to scale the resolution to fit on the physical screen.

It seems to be cutting off all four edges if I could find a way to scale down the resolution to about 95% both vertical and horizontal then I believe that would solve my problem.

I am somewhat familiar with xRandr but not familiar with Xorg. There are no settings on my TV to adjust this even on the secret menus. My computer is running Intel HD3000 or sandy bridge gfx, integrated into my CPU. I'll post my xrandr output.

I've also tried to set my resolution using xrandr to lower resolutions even 720p but it only seems to cut off more of my screen when I do that. Also my TV supports 16:9 and through VGA supports resolutions up to 1366x768 I don't know if that helps but thought I should mention it.

Sorry if my posting skills are not up to par the code was too long to screen-shot it.

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1848, maximum 8192 x 8192
