I just had a similar issue with a different driver and remembered your post
If the S bits in the infoframe are 0 the display may under- or overscan the
the image (Although the spec says it should behave the same if no infoframe
is present). If it is set to 2 the display should underscan the image, so
I'd be interested to see if the following patch changes the displays
behavior for you.
