OK now im going to try to make this as simple as i can. I will firs tell you that i have had similar problem with my winxp box the problem is that the hdmi tv when in 1280x720 (720p) i am missing cutting off like 1/2 inch of the image . Almost like if it would be zoomed in to much . Now the early driver for the win32 box was OK . Since i upgraded the drivers on my winxp box i have had issues (cutting off) i also notice a new option called (resize desktop) and that fixed the problem also notice that the final resolution is 1176x664 instead of 1280x720. The old win drivers did not have that option nether the problem.

So my question is how can i fix this under linux there are no desktoop resize option in the gui driver setting for nvidia . i am unsure if a custom resolution of 1176x664 will fix the issue as i think it may have to do with the H and V sync. Is there a way i can mod my config file to help ?
