Your ATI was underscanning so you need to set the overscan slider in CCC to 0% (default is 15% for some strange reason). Depending on what version of CCC you have this setting may be hard to find. But it has been posted many times (I posted a solution to this within the last 2 days). Search ATI Overscan and you should find how to do it. All of this presumes you have your desktop resoltion set to 1920x1080.
I owe you a beer.
Yeah Win7 grabbed a driver automatically and it didnt have CCC. I went out to ATIs site, grabbed the right driver and bam. I feel like an idiot, I'm not some total noob when it comes to this stuff and that sure makes me feel like one.

I should have thought of this ages ago, I just didnt think that a picture changing could use so much processor that it would judder my video for 6 seconds straight, I got a nice dual core proc =\\
So uh, yea, my video woes were taken care of. However, my 5.1 issue, while MUCH more fleshed out, still exists. I need the Gurus to help me out on this one.
I should probably start a new thread, but I am torn between being completely offtopic in my own thread and starting a new one that will likely just clutter up the board. If I dont get an answer here, Im reposting this issue in it's own thread.5.1 Channels of Hell.
So, ATI 4200 HDMI Windows 7 Ent x86 running to Sony HT-IS100. I want 5.1 audio. I know my current setup (Realtek HD Audio Driver, Realtek HDMI driver, Shark007, AC3) is capable of giving out 5.1 so I know this CAN work, but for whatever reason, it does not. I think the problem has to do with bitstreaming audio or something but I do not understand this stuff well enough to make an accurate diagnosis. I need an audio Dr House here real quick.
I've seen it work!!! With the Shark007 all setup and configured to run 5.1 and use/passthru to the AC3 filter, Ive SEEEN my receiver say 5.1. However this was only when playing an AVI with (DTS?) 6 channels of audio AND it only worked when I used WMP12.
6 Channel AVI with WMP - 5.1 Audio Bliss!
6 Channel AVI with MPC - fail (stereo only).
6 Channel MKV with MPC- fail (stereo only).
6 Channel MKV with WMP - fail (video is messed up too)
When I open the AC3 filter config when an MKV is playing I can see all 6 channels bouncing around, but it only outputs 2.0 stereo.
I neeeeed MKVs to work =[ Whats the difference between the 5.1 in an MKV and in an AVI. Why does it work in WMP??? what do I need to configure or change to make this damn thing use all 5 speakers? Its gotta be codec related if stupid WMP does something that MPC isnt doing. The more pressing issue tho is that MKVs dont work in anything. -_- I've heard some stuff about bitstreaming blu rays to be a pita, iono if that has anything to do with my issue but if it does then I will, very reluctantly, buy yet another video card. I understand the 5750 works well for this crap =[do I need this to make this work???
, Id love if I didnt have to get it....
