    I have a 1080p plasma and for the life of me I cannot adjust anything to solve the overscan issues. I have tried anything I can think of including powerstrip. A custom driver says the panel can do 1920 x 1200 but I know thats not true

    Any help?

    I just went throught a similar situation...

    1st...did you uncheck 'Overscan' in System Preferences? (I'm sitting at work so I don't have access to the Mini to be sure where 'Overscan' is located)

    2nd...your TV should have an overscan option in its menu someplace, my Sony does.

    When I originally hooked up my Mini to our TV, regardless of resolution, I was getting overscan (top navigation bar was totally gone, and half of the dock was hidden). Un-checking 'Overscan' in System Preferences produced a smaller image with black borders all around and selecting +1 overscan in the TV menu produced a centered picture filling the entire screen.
