ati CCC overscan issue

Just reinstalled my ati3450 and I cant get to the page in CCC that handles the overscan, I have a 2 inch border around the desktop!

In 9.5 it always defaulted to -15% or whatever and i need it at 0%, but I cant get to the dialogue in the new version, anyone any ideas how I can fix this?

For me, Catalyst 9.6 was the last driver version to include the overscan setting. I am using Win7.7600.16385 which scans correctly, thus allowing me to use current ATI drivers.

Don't know if this is what you have tried or not, but directly from the CCC help files,

Adjusting Image Position and Size Manually for TVsManually Adjusting Image Size and Position using Underscan/Overscan for TVs

  1. Based on the navigation system contained in the ATI Catalyst™ Control Center window, do one of the following:
    • Navigation menu—From the display palette on the Desktops & Displays page, click the desired TV, and then click Configure in the context menu that appears.
    • Navigation tree—From the tree in the Graphics Settings tab, expand TV Properties.
  2. Click Adjustments.
  3. Move the Underscan/Overscan slider to adjust the overall size of the image on the TV. Use this slider to adjust any visible black borders around the edge of the image.
    Note: The slider is not available for TVs configured to use a custom or the default optimized timing mode.

Due toa complete reworking of the GUI, the instructions are slighly off, but the posted directions do reveal the "missing" feature.

Good work.
