Connect one monitor via D-Sub, the other via HDMI, that card may not support HDMI + DVI at the same time. We'll take it from there.

Unfortunaltey I don't have and d-sub adapter as the card is dual dvi. This is the exact card made by XFX that I have if you need it's specs:

Graphic Cards - ATI Radeon HD 5000 - ATI Radeon? HD 5770

The only adapaters and cables that i have at my disposal right now are as follows:

1 - 6ft HDMI cable
1 - 35ft HDMI cable (for the Tv)
1 - 6ft DVI cable
1 - 35 ft DVI to HDMI cable (for the tv)
2 - DVI to HDMI adapters

Hmm. Odd. It may be a HDMI limitation, but as I don't have any HDMI cables, I can't test it myself. (Both my screens are DVI/DVI)

The only other thing I can think of is what I suggested here:

ATI HD 5770 is Hell on Earth

I am pretty sure this is the problem as discussed in another thread here:

The solution that was given was this:

In Catalyst control Center:

Avivo Video > Theater Mode > select Scale to full screen

The problem I am having is that unlike the pic below I do not have a tab for "Theater Mode". I have all the other tabs except for that one. Can someone here please help me out on this so I can eliminate those black bars.

Side note..when I use my DVI everything works correctly it is only when I use my HDMI cables that this happens. Now while I can use my DVI I would prefer to use my HDMI cables especially since I bought a 35ft cable to run to my TV that i can't use right now becuase of this problem.

If you need my specs i have given detailed ones to help in anyway possible. Again any help would be appreciated.
Try this, it worked for me.

Open CCC. Click on "Graphics" in the upper left hand corner. Click on "Desktops & Displays".

In the lower left hand corner you'll see a small picture of a monitor. Right click on that and select "Configure".

On the new screen that comes up choose the tab labeled "Scaling Options".

Oh my, for some reason the default setting uses Underscan!

Ok, set that "0%" by dragging the slider all the way to the right.

Hit "Apply" then "OK".

This worked for me using the 10.2 cat's and a Sony HDTV using a HDMI cable and an ATI HD 5770. Resolution is at 1920 x 1080.

It took me some time to find this setting. Lol, I was going a little nutso looking at other settings.

I hope this works for you.

With your post above Babel17 we have a solution finally!!!

Threw every configuration of cables and adpaters I had at it and got the correct results every single time. Both monitor and Tv are both running at 1080p.

Thankyou Babel17!!!!!

Thank you very much for the kind words. Knowing I was able to help someone has made my day!

And thanks for posting that this setting did the trick. With luck, other users with the identical issue will find this thread and have reason to try the fix.
