LM13; external monitor: picture doesn't cover entire screen

Postby randomelite on Sat Feb 23, 2013 1:49 pm

When plugging an external 40" monitor over HDMI, the desktop is centered but there's still space left around the screen to be filled.

On my dads Win7-machine (over HDMI) the desktop covers entire screen but not in LM13. I installed jupiter to fix the issue but without any improvement.

I've tested several monitors with same results. On Win7 all screens are perfect.

I think the fix is to adjust the settings on the TV to "native" or something similar. I'm not sure if it's a driver issue or something else, but it usually works.
