    It's overscan.

    What version of the drivers are you using? Newer drivers let you adjust to compensate for overscan.

    I just configure the GUI to accomodate the overscan. WhenI need to configure the HTPC, I VNC over to it configure from there.

    I use TightVNC.

    You can adjust the Media Portal screen in the setup within the program, but you may be stuck in Windows if the drivers do not have any type of correction. Like the Commodore said, if it's a problem for you, you may have to VNC in.

    Does your tv have any other connection options?

    I have the same Problem with my Ati Radeon Card! The Problem is, that the Ati Driver don't allow TV Resolution higher than 1024X768! If my Monitor has 1280x1024, than the TV cut something! If the Resulotion is 1024x768 everything ist fine. Maybe the Nvidia Driver has the same Problem!?
    Have you tested the TV-Tool for Nvidia?

I don't have NextPVR working yet so I don't get any TV guide or able to record. But it's closer than I've been before. I don't understand why HDhomerun can pick up my channels and MP picks them...
