Hello,
I see people asking on various forums, everyday, why they have a black border around their TV screen with an AMD vid card.

What possible advantage could there be to having the driver set to 8% underscan by default? And then making the setting hard to find?!

Their driver writers must be on meth.

The setting is not hard to find. In CCC just check the no scaling option.

Obviously, I don't share your opinion of this matter. Personally, when I first bought an HDTV, I noticed the black borders, and looked all over the CCC, and failed to find it. Part of the problem, was that I wasn't even sure what to look for, or if the problem was a setting in CCC. I had to do a google search, and comb forums to find the answer. Do a google search for "black borders TV ATI" and you'll see there are a lot of others that asked the same question. Worse, there are a lot of people that give the wrong answers leading these poor schmucks on a wild goose chase of troubleshooting.
