Screen on TV too large

By watu ·
I use Toshiba Satellite 1800-654S with Trident CyberBlade XPA1 card and driv. 5.1.2527.128, RCA TV OUT. When I use my TV set (Philips 29 inch 100 Hz) as a second display (photos), the computer screen and photos are much larger than TV screen and I can't to make them smaller, so on TV screen can see only a part of computer screen. I can choose different parameters (even 640x480 or 800x600) but the size is the same. How to make the picture smaller?

Screen on TV too large

The TV Out part of the display and the laptop part of the display use two independent monitor devices and should be configured differently!

In the advanced properties for display, you should have the option to define the display device used on the TV out half of the display driver. Set this to 'Generic Television' and then reboot the machine!
