I have my C2D mini hooked up via a DVI to HDMI connector to a Philips 42" plasma. I can select 1280x720, and the desktop is just large enough to hide the menubar and half of the dock.

Unchecking overscan doesn't help.

When I launch Front Row the TV will auto-adjust after a few seconds and it seems to fit properly. (Movies, etc. are not getting cut off.)

I tried Display Config X, and set it to 720P, 60Hz, and - same result. Going up to full HD seems to fit the screen properly, but text is too fuzzy and small to be readable.

Display Config X's FAQ says adjusting the porches should help me fine tune, but that option is grayed out.

And other resolutions give me the black screen.
I'm adjusting the settings via screen sharing so I can always get the picture back.

I'm wondering if I this is a Leopard graphics driver thing - my Macbook does the same thing. An XP and Vista machine provides a correct display with no over or underscan..

It wouldn't be an issue, but not all of my MKV files work in Front Row - even with Perian installed. If you open them in VLC or mplayer, they scale to the desktop size when you select full screen, and it cuts off the top and bottom.

Any input appreciated.

On your TV's set-up, is there a display option for pixel-to-pixel or 1-to-1 or something similar?

I had the exact same cut-off issue initially occur on my Samsung LCD but changing to Just Scan (Samsung's version of pixel-to-pixel) resolved it.

To fix the fuzzy font make sure the HDMI input that you're using is defined on the TV as "PC" or whatever it says in your manual.

I don't think the fine-tuning stuff works on HDMI, it's more for the VGA crowd.

Have you tried SwitchResX? My display is a rear-projection, so it necessarily overscans. SwitchResX was pretty easy to use and allowed me to tinker until I got the exact display dimensions I needed. But if you are using a plasma, there should be no overscan whatsoever.

My bet is its the tv.

You will need to hunt through the tv set-up menu for some kind of PC mode etc.
