    OK, I couldn't quite figure out the way to word the title..

    Basically, I'm using my MacBook as a Media Server through my LCD TV (Samsung LE40R74BD) via VGA (Using the DVI-VGA converter)

    I'm using DisplayConfigX to enable the MacBook to have a resolution of 1368x768 (The same as my TV's).

    Both the LCD and the "SAMSUNG" displays are set to 1368x768.

    However, when it's all connected, the image appears to be shifted to the left about 40 or so pixels on the TV. There is a big black bar on the right hand side of the screen, and a chunk of the image is missing on the left.

    Does anyone know how to essentially 'shunt' the VGA image to the right?

    Have you tried not running the displays in Mirrored mode? See if that will fix the situation

    see if there is some sort of auto-adjust button on your tv
