Hi, i just made a htpc xbmc build, and well i luckily found the way to get rid of the overscan thing on my hdtv that made the picture be around black bars... now i have a problem with xbmc, when i enable the adjust display to video refresh rate on xbmc, every time the movie starts and adjust to 24hz the picture is aligned to the left.. so theres some video chopped and a black space to the right so is not centered, i just got tired of spending like 2 hours on catalyst moving every setting and i cannot resolve this thing... however.. right now i have disabled the adjust refresh rate to match video and the video plays normal but is stuck at 60hz so i see some stuttering or whatever you call it so im bothered with it.. it just doesnt look to good and is distracting.. oh and i forgot when i have the refresh rate to match video it does switch to 24hz i check my tv and it says its on 24hz but like i said the picture is moved to the left...
i tried the catalyst to manually switch to 1080p24hz and it looks fine in windows.. but soon as i open xbmc goes back to 60hz.. and if i play a video and i have the adjust refresh rate to match video it does switch but yep to the left so is unwatchable..
windows server 2008 r2
amd catalyst new version
amd radeon HD 7770
phenom x4 965
msi am3 motherboard
8gb of ram
LG 55LM8600 (tv is set up for just scan- putting it to 16:9 does the same thing)
Whow - I could have sworn I saw the exact same post over at xbmc
I know you said you had found a way to get rid of overscan. If you are going to use 'adjust refresh rate to match playback' you have to set overscan for each refresh rate you are likely to use - 24, 50 etc. If you've already done this - I'm stuck - haven't seen that issue reported.
on my hdtv settings on catalyst i only see 1080p24hz 30hz and 60hz theres also 1080i it says add and apply format which on 30hz theres no way to apply it... this thing is so confusing lol made me want to slap my face for not getting nvidia lol
i have everything disabled on xbmc except the dxva and dxva2 settings so is stuck at 60hz and i have normal view.. if that helps
Hmm, try adding the 23 Hz option as described here.
This is one of the many reasons I hate ATI cards. The overscan situation is obnoxious.
From the thread that lockdown linked to:
In order to see the 23hz option you need to add it to the list of refresh rates by using the 'force' button'. Click the force button in CCC in the menu where you change display size and refresh rate, in there is a 23hz option, hit the checkbox to make it appear.
Set the desktop to 23hz as shown above and report back with findings.
yeah i tried the video calibration it just doesnt work.. i believe im making a mistake i think the video is 23hz or 23.97 or something like that.. i go to catalyst and i try to chose the 23hz option and goes back to 24hz.. it wont let me select 23hz
I DEMAND THE HIGHEST OF THE HIGH FIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I did fixed it alil by reinstalling catalyst and restoring everything to default and just disabled scaling and did the xbmc calibration adn my tv to just scan.. god damn it took almost a week to resolve this problem..
