Hi All

Hope you all having a nice a Christmas, Santa brought me an Acer Revo
R3600 and I'm attempting to do that same as our beloved popey (Alan
Pope) has done and turn it into a sort of media streaming centre.

I followed his instructions

I have asked him to update the instructions (In my case) he might
consider adding the following;

1. Switch on and boot to BIOS
2. Set boot order 1.USB 2.CD/DVD 3.Network 4.HDD
3. Change USB from [Auto] to [HDD] (They don't auto detect over 2GB)
4. This is the clincher, change "Boot to Revo Boot" to [Disabled]

Everything has gone OK apart from one issue I'm hoping someone can help
with? Popey talks about 'overscan' which I have :-(

This means I can just about see the bottom of the *Top* panel and the
top of the *Bottom* panel I am using the Nvidia driver V.185 Nvidia
control centre reports 1280x720 with 'auto' refresh.

My TV is a Samsung 32" the handbook says 1360 X 768 @ 60Hz but that is
not available in Nvidia control panel (60Hz is but no effect) I have run
nvidia-xconfig but still no joy with the overscan I'm not very good with
manual xorg.conf anyone know what settings I need to fix this?
