OK, title is somewhat vague, but about 12+ months ago I built a PC for a disabled person who had requested help on local neighbourhood web site, she was hoping to just upgrade her current machine.
After an initial visit her current machine was so old an upgrade was never on the table, so she went down a new build, which cost her sub £350, this included a Gigabyte m'board and an AMD Ryzen 5 2200G, needless to say she was thrilled with it. But like most users they start messing around she's replaced the perfectly good Asus monitor with a TV (albeit the TV is much larger) and installed AVG Internet Security and AVG VPN
The AVG install still needs sorting, the machine is running slower than her old machine and it has an SSD as it's main boot drive.
But the real issue is the TV, she's connected the TV to the PC/VGA input which is fine, except for whatever reason when you switch the PC on the TV fails to receive a signal, press the power button off then back on, it works
So having gone round to resolve a software install issue, which I have sorted I am now left with the output from the PC to TV, tried an HDMI connection -> this throws the display into 640x480, I later discovered that the colour management had been set for the Asus
Unchecked that and I am now getting closer to a display of 1900 x ? close, but the taskbar at the bottom of the screen is just visible (top edge only) and there are two black vertical bars either side.
Currently I've left it connected to the TV's PC/VGA input (at least the image is OK) and come home to do some research, then slapped myself for not getting the model number of the TV, all I know it's a Toshiba.
During the research some older flat screen TV's have a setting for something called overscan or depending on the manufacturer could be, picture mode, screen fit, anyway you get the picture
Has anyone ever come across this behaviour regarding HDMI input to older TV's as this is a new on me.
