I output a resolution of 1280x720 from my home servers onboard graphics (HD2000) to my HDTV, however the sides are partially cut off unless i go into the intel control center and modify the aspect ratio scaling option from 100 to 60.

Why does it need that to work?

Its an older TV, only does 720p aka HD and not full HD.

Resolution of your panel is probably 1366x720. Also, check if you TV has a PC mode for 1:1 pixel mapping.

All tvs overscan by default.

Ah yeah you're right i had a look at the specs and thats the res it uses. No option for 1:1 pixel mapping though.

I had to set up a custom resolution with the intel HD2000 graphics because there was no option for 1366x720, but it wouldn't accept it once i set it. Bleh i gave up ill just settle for 1280x720 with the scaling options, looks fine anyways :)

Yeah, for some reason I couldn't configure a custom resolution with HD2000 graphics either. I thought my issue had something to do with the fact I was running HDMI through my receiver. Eh, I'll make do much like you.

The tv is probably 1366x768 which is 16:9, not 1366x720.

That being said, sometimes you need to overscan or underscan. I use a 1080p tv as my monitor and I always need to overscan via the AMD driver.
