Split/padding goes away when Nvidia fixes Overscan

Adam Abel81992

I recently hooked up a second 4K TV up to my PC but it is overscanning slightly. I have adjusted it in the nvidia control panel to fix the problem. Then I go into DF and setup my 4 way split so i have 4 1920x1080 per monitor and hit apply. When I do that DF appears to undo the overscan fix even though the resolution shows the custom 3762x2116 that the overscan resize fixed. If i go into the nvidia panel again to fix the overscan it removes my split. I'm not finding any way to fix the overscan/resize on DF. Any suggestions?
I'd like to use my splits and have a taskbar I can see

I have a Geforce 970 GTX with DF version 9.7

Hi Adam,

Sorry for the late reply, I was speaking with out developers over this. We tested it out on our end, and it seems like nVidia is doing some strange things with their custom resolution settings. Is it possible for you to find a fix without adding a custom resolution?

Thanks!

Probably not without replacing the display or video card By weird what do you mean? can you provide some details? This might help me figure out how to work around this.

I'm running 2 4K 43" TV's both LGs one will always require a bit of overscan adjustment unfortunately when connected. I'll reach out to Nvidia to see if there is anything I can do but man this sucks the whole point of adding the second 4K TV was to give me 8 1080p screens. This is the main reason I use your product is the splitting. Its far superior to just adding displays. Thanks for looking into this.

Hi Adam,

You should be able to fix this on the TV side, rather then trying to compensate for it on the software side. Every TV is different, but if you look for an "Adjust to fit" setting in the Aspect Ratio settings or Picture Fit settings (something along those lines), that should fix it up.

If you aren't able to find it, can you give me the make and model of the TV?

Thanks!
