    By overscanning, you get rid of the black bands that are around your image. All NTSC signals from PCs are underscanned to make sure that the image fits all screens. The drawback is that you never use the full potential of your screen.

    In a TV set, the image you see is actually bleeding behind your plastic case, this ensures that you get use of all of your screen, although a bit of it is cropped off.

    Therfore, by overscanning, you are bleeding the image off all sides of your screen and using the full surface.

    Did this make sense?

    Question guys. When u decided on these cards, what was the reason you guys didn't get ATI based card ie. ATI all in wonder pro...... Seems like everyone i know with these cards have all sorts of problem. My two ATI card in two diff box works fine out of the box no special sort of configuration or what not. Bootup and signal is out on TV and faster than it puts it on regular PC monitor anyway i will wait 4 your response

    For me, ATI sucks. I find their driver support sucks. It took them 3.5 years after the release of their XPert@play series to supply OpenGL drivers. I also have an ATI PCI TV Wonder card, still havent seen stable drivers (have had the card 2 years now). I spoke to one of their technicians one day who candidly told me that they almost always release hardware before it is truly ready. I also know someone who works in their marketing department who candidly tells me that their product is only average.

    The All-in-Wonder is an OK all around card, but 3D acceleration sucks. Of course for a car, this is really not a problem. In my particular case, I take my PC out of the car to play with when I go away to visit family etc. So a good gaming card is a must! Therefore, Geforce baby!

    This, of course, is my opinion.

    will any of this software work with other cards?? i have a Jaton Trident PCI (POS!!) and it would be cool if i could get it to overscan w/ that software.
    I would like to know the same thing... I know we can do it under the desktop-&gt;properties-&gt;advanced options, but it doesn't stay between shut downs. Anyone figured out how to keep overscan on for this cheapy vid card?
