I can't disable overscan in my TV.
I can switch a few modes but non of them help because the modes which
change something only steal more but no mode gives.

Underscan doesn't seem to help too. I tried down to 1064x504 in steps of 8
(from 1280x720) and my TV always seems to compensate.

What I don't understand is, that all just worked with fglrx drivers and
zaphod mode. No overscan at all. That looks like a driver issue to me.
