Well done. I've also been testing Rasbmc with a different SD card on the same setup, and it has no problem disabling overscan. have a peek here

Also, there are options presented during the file name option, such as Append, etc.. Are you saying that XBian no longer makes changes to the config.txt file? I followed the 6 steps, but it didn't work. I never touch the screen size settings on xbmc.

The only time you need to change these settings on XBMC is if your TV does not have that option ("Just Scan").

It could also be a quirk with my TV (Panasonic TH-37PX80B), but it seems odd it's only XBian affected. 17th Jan, 2013, 10:14 AM Post: #4 CurlyMo Registered Posts: 3,501 Joined: What's the benefit in setting 1366x768?
