How do I enable/disable overscan on my TV in Catalyst Control Center?

Overscan is a feature of most modern televisions that enables them to display a picture at a larger size than the native resolution of the television. The feature was originally designed to allow televisions to display images without producing any visible black bars around the edges of the image. However, this can cause problems if the image is displayed at too large a size, as it may result in some of the image being cut off.

Fortunately, the issue can be addressed by disabling overscan in the Catalyst Control Center. The Catalyst Control Center is a utility that is included with most ATI video cards and can be used to configure a variety of settings related to the video card.

To get started, open the Catalyst Control Center by clicking on the Start menu and searching for “Catalyst Control Center”. Once the program has been opened, click on the “My Digital Flat-Panel” option located under the “Displays” section.

From here, click on the “Scaling Options” tab and select the “Enable Overscan” checkbox. This should be unchecked in order to disable overscan.

Once the box has been unchecked, click on the “Apply” button located in the bottom right corner of the window. This will save the changes and should result in a better picture quality on your television.

If you are still experiencing problems with the image being cut off, you may need to adjust the display settings on your television. This can usually be done by pressing the “Menu” button on your television remote and navigating to the “Settings” or “Picture” menu. Look for options related to the size or aspect ratio of the image and adjust them accordingly.

In conclusion, disabling overscan in the Catalyst Control Center is a simple process that can help to improve the picture quality of your television. If you are still experiencing problems with the image being cut off, it is recommended that you adjust the display settings on your television to resolve the issue.
