I do understand this subject gets answered a lot. I have a debian laptop that 1366x768 60.02. Now the TV fits everything if I use the same res. I would like for the tv to run at 1920x1080 30.00* (60 causes distortion), but I am losing several pixels on all sides using that size. My gpu is intel and I have no overscan option. My TV is cheap and has no overscan controls that I can find and yet it obvious is doing it. This means xrandr overscan options do not work.
xrandr --output HDMI-1 --fb 1920x1080 xrandr: specified screen 1920x1080 not large enough for output HDMI-1 (1920x1080+1542+0)
Creates a thin viewing area and can only be reset by,
xrandr --output HDMI-1 --scale 1x1
which sets me back to all edges being lost.
Now I find panning may be a possibly but I can little examples and explanations help me understanding how it works enough to give the code to get me what I want. Has what happens a lot in linux coding depends upon dates that it was used and graphics cards being used. As a 2019 edition xorg is now just about gone and is now replaced by wayland which can influence how things work. Is there anyway I can use 1920 instead of 1366
