Raspberry Pi 4 and overscan

Hi,

I cannot get the overscan to work on my Raspberry Pi 4. The screen does not fit on the TV that I'm using. I did not have this issue with my Raspberry Pi 2b. Here is what I have in my config.txt on the Raspberry Pi 4

Code: Select all

# uncomment this if your display has a black border of unused pixels visible
# and your display can output without overscan
disable_overscan=0

# uncomment the following to adjust overscan. Use positive numbers if console
# goes off screen, and negative if there is too much border
overscan_left=40
overscan_right=40
overscan_top=40
overscan_bottom=40

# uncomment to force a console size. By default it will be display's size minus
# overscan.
framebuffer_width=1280
framebuffer_height=800
Any ideas? Thanks

Did you do a search of the forum first? Because this has been covered a LOT of times. Right now, no, overscan hasn't been implemented, but it should be fairly soon.

Well mine is still unusable. Can anyone here quantify "fairly soon"?

If you have overscan on your monitor try commenting out the line for the new video driver in config. I am on my Pi 3 right now and I do not have it. I think it is the last line, or two lines I comment out on the Pi 4 and it solved my overscan problem. It took it back to the Pi 3 driver. Maybe this will help.
