Linux: Overscan compensation and screen cutting.
Hi everyone,
I'm experiencing a strange problem with the latest driver 285.05.09.
As soon as I apply some overscan compensation (it's a ION HTPC connected through HDMI to a HDTV) the screen starts to be cutted off from the bottom. Higher values lead to higher screen cut off.

Any idea how to solve this problem? Unfortunately overscan compensation is a feature I need badly.

Thanks in advance.

Matt.

I've been begging for a fix for a while. It is a driver and Edie issue.

The strange part is I wasn't having this problem till I updated to xorg 1.11 and 285.05.09. I'll revert those two waiting for a fix.
