That's great, and good to know about the TVs.

For a (BestBuy) Dynex TV, I had to change the Overscan setting to Off). It was in the Advanced Video submenu of the Picture settings. In Linux, I really suffered with all the edges hidden, until I found that setting. I'd looked for it a couple times before I finally found it.

Android wasn't so bad, since pretty quickly, I managed to find method 2.

That experience made me decide to do a little research for other menu settings, to write the OP.

On my fairly cheap, BestBuy store-brand TV (Dynex), Overscan had been cutting off the borders of everything. So turning it off meant that everything improved -- Pine/Linux, Pine/Android, Netflix, Amazon, everything.
