We have a PC in our church with an NVIDIA Geoforce GT630 graphics card. We take two signals from it - the main display (HDMI) to the PC monitor in our PA area and a VGA signal which goes to converter and splitter boxes. Converts the signal to S-Video for the main church projector and also sends a signal to two LCD TV screens. The problem I have is that on both the projected screen and the two TV screens I an losing the edges of the any pc image (looks normal on PC monitor), so if we don't leave a border we losee the first letter or so of sentences on the images that the congregation can see. Have played around in NVIDIA Control Center without success.

The resolution of a standard (non-HD) television and I would assume your projector if it is fed via S video, is different than the resolution of a PC monitor. On some graphic cards you can independantly change the output resolution to fit the monitors native resolution. I am guessing that is your issue. If that card doesn't allow for resolution changes, I would buy a secondary card for the TVs/projector and run it's settings specifically for those devices.

Thanks for the feedback. We have now managed to solve this - we found an underscan/overscan switch on the signal converter black box, turned it to underscan and it worked!
