    there is no overscan option of any sort only view hdcp status or resizes desktop.and resizing the desktop lowers the resolution to lower then what it should be.

    whats the model number of the TV?

    Keep playing with the resolutions and see if you can find one that looks right and fills the tv screen...

    Ok, well after reading up on the tv it is deff 1920*1080 and so should work..

    I need to get a HDMI cable for my monitor yet so i dunno what settings are in the nvcp at the moment for HDMI connections.

    Also, in the nvcp try setting the res to 1080i and not 1080p and see what happens.

    Also what driver version are you using?

    the only thing relevent to hdtv in nvidia control panel on this latest vershion is view HDCP status..witch has no option to do anything..and resize desktop for hdtvs. it has a horizontal slider and vertical slider..when ajusting them u get everythign to fit the screen but by doing this u are lowering the reselotion..witch is pointles.u will see what i meen.if u have the overscan issue that i am experniceing

    You can use any tv as a monitor, whether it will be any good is another question.

    One thing that was not addressed in the thread above is most tv's have a setting that needs to be changed if connecting to a pc. Also sometimes you have to use a specific HDMI port. Always refer to your tv manual (that thing that you probably didn't keep)
