I bought an Nvidia GT 710 for a computer I'm essentially using as an HTPC, so I could have HDMI out and 1080 resolution. However, once this machine is hooked up via HDMI, I experience an over scan issue where the panel and other borders are being cut off. I've dealt with this issue before on a laptop with integrated Intel graphics, but the usual xrandr tricks such as "set audio force-dvi" have not worked.
I'm running Xubuntu 16.04, and switched to the proprietary Nvidia driver, but will gladly take a solution for either the proprietary or open source drivers. Under "Nvidia X Server Settings", I have found the underscan slider, but that only seems to zoom in the desktop, whereas I need it to zoom out.
I see in the Advanced options that I can set values for ViewPort In/Out. Will that help me, and if so, what values should I start with?
What can I do to fix this issue on this Nvidia card? I assume once I get the scanning correct, I can just dive in to XFCE's scaling and DPI settings to get the text looking right, correct?
Thanks for any and all advice.
