TV Screen Edge woes: 2 Fixes

    Let's fix that, shall we?

    Method 1: Settings of your TV  Smile
    You can adjust the settings of your TV. You may have already tried that. Can it be done on
    your TV, you wonder? Yes, it can.

    Which menu and sub-menu?
    There's no standard method of organizing the settings of TVs. Many TV settings menus
    appear to have been created by confused rabbits running late. Poke around, and definitely
    try these menus and sub-menus:
  • Picture
  • Video
  • Advanced Video
  • Screen
  • Screen Adjustment
  • Picture Size
  • or who knows...
    What is the item called?
    Look for any of these.
  • Overscan
  • Scan
  • Screen Fit
  • Screen Fill
  • Format
  • Title Safe / Safe Title
  • Action Safe / Safe Action
  • TV safe
  • Aspect Ratio*
  • Resolution*
  • Size*
  • Wide / Width*
  • High / Height*
   *Some RPi users report using these items to correct this issue on their TVs. It may be 
    necessary with your TV, but I'd avoid it if I could.

    What is the correct setting?
    The correct option could be:
  • Just scan
  • Dot by Dot
  • Fit
  • Off / uncheck (for Overscan)
  • 1x1 pixel ratio
  • Full
  • Auto / Auto Config
  • On / check
  • 4:3 (or even 16:9) *
  • 1080p / 1080i *
  • or other options (experiment)
    Put in a little time and effort. Check all the sub-menus, and anything that could be a
    sub-menu. Even if you can't find it right away, it's probably there, somewhere. Look again.

    Succeed with method 1, and the issue is fixed for that TV, even if you later upgrade to
    a new OS image. Plus, it fixes this for Android, RemixOS and Linux. But will it affect your
    other uses of the TV? Maybe.

    Method 2: Settings of Android -- Screen Scrap Edge
    If the above method doesn't work, or isn't ideal for you, here's a different way that works
    only for Android using HDMI. Both DD images and rooted DD images can do this.

    In Android, go to Settings / Display / Screen scrap edge. Set width and height to ~96%.

    RemixOS does not have this setting, so you're limited to adjusting your TV settings for Remix
    (or Linux).

    With Screen Scrap Edge, you must apply this fix every time you change the Android image.
    That is, if another Android image comes out in a month, and you upgrade to it, then you 
    have to do this over again.

    Don't use both methods, unless you want a black frame of unused space.

    I hope this helps.   Smile  Don't forget to give this a thumbs up, if it helps you, and definitely 
    add your own TV settings experience below.

Awesome!  Method 2 (scrap edge settings) worked for me on my old TV!
