Re: screen resizing

Look for "overscan" or "screen fit" or similar in your TV settings.

If you can't adjust it via the TV, then try xrandr. Get your HDMI label with

xrandr | grep connected

Then try

xrandr --output <HDMI label> --auto

Then try

xrandr --output <HDMI label> --mode (X)x(Y)

Get X and Y possibilities from xrandr, and choose a resolution that your monitor supports.

And that is the end of my KnowHow... hmm
