It is a widescreen TV but when you set sidescreen resolutions, including the monitor's native resolution (1366x768), it has considerable overflow on all sides of the screen meaning it's impossible to use things like menu bars.
The only resolution it behaves at is 1024x768 which is of course 4:3 rather than widescreen meaning there are black bars down each side.
I can sort of fudge it to display at the right resolution by doing:
Code: Select all
xrandr --newmode "1360x768_60.00" 84.72 1360 1424 1568 1776 768 769 772 795 -HSync +Vsync
xrandr --addmode VGA1 1360x768_60.00
xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1360x768_60.00 --transform 1,0,-100,0,1,-18,0,0,1 --fb 1225x720
This does work for a bit for the window manager (XFCE) but after a while it reverts to thinking that it should be using the full 1360x768 which moves parts off the screen.
Applications like mplayer and xbmc just fullscreen straight to the larger, overflowing, resolution.
Does anyone know how of any fixes for this? Either making other applications use the frame buffer resolution or a better way to set the resolution.
