I am not exactly sure where to start with this one so I will describe my issue. I have a LMDE box that I would like to use HDMI with a HD TV. I hooked it up and everything basically worked (ie sound and video).
The one thing that I noticed is that the font didn't look that great and I also notice that there was a black border around the edges. This mad me think that the native 1080p resolution was not being used. So, I hooked up a blu-ray player and the entire screen is used. Next I used the VGA imput and the entire screen was used again and the fonts were rendered beautifully. So, VGA input will work but I am trying to figure out why the same resolution look bad using HDMI.
In all cases, my HDTV reports that it is in 1080P mode. When using VGA and HDMI out from the computer, my resolution is set to 1920x1080. Does anyone have any ideas why the desktop is slightly small when using HDMI?
