Overscan?

Wed Feb 25, 2015 12:49 pm

When I run Risc OS Pi on a Raspberry Pi 2 i get like an inch of black screen all around (I'm using a 32" TV as a screen). Is there some way to change that? I tried to change the settings of the screen but that just messed up everything worse. In different distros for the Raspberry Pi there is a function called overscan. With that you can adjust the visible screen by the pixel so to use the whole screen. Any hints would be very appreciated,

there will still be a config.txt file on the boot partition - just remove the overscan options from it

Actually there is no overscan option in the config file. I just want some help with making it work without making to much experimenting that might crasch the system alltogether.

Add a line to config.txt

Code: Select all

disable_overscan=1

Works just as in Raspbian. The ideal for me with the RPi 2 is -32 on all sides. Leaves like 8 pixels black around the screen so it doesn't reflect on the plastic frame on the TV. Thanks for all your input!!! ;)
