    Hi guys,

    How do you enable overscan on the all in wonder cards please? I have seen a post for the new Rage versions, but I have an older one and I can't find the overscan option using the ATI Rage tweaks option.

    Anyone got any ideas? Overscan gets rid of those widescreen bards which appear when TV-out is enabled - even if you watching full screen films....

    Cheers!

    Paul.

    Hi jrwood,

    I have already tried this (I replied in the post you mentioned). The registry entry isn't there on my PC, and the tweaks option doesn't seem to display the overscan option. boooo...

    Any ideas?

    Cheers,

    Paul.

    after you installed rage tweak and rebooted then enable the overscan function then reboot again

    then go into display properties click advanced then the tab displays then adjustments, you should now see the overscan button.

    Thanks JSW, I have had a look, but I don't seem to have the overscan function. I remember that when it was installed something came up with an error.

    Could it be that the overscan doesn't work with my card ? :-(

    Cheers,

    Paul.

    What driver version/operating system are you using?.

    Try another driver for your ATI card, as it may not be in all of the releases?. Though its worked on all of my cards under WinXP.
