I have a mac mini connected to a 32" 720p LCD monitor via HDMI. Works fantastic! Here is my issue... The apple screen size on the monitor does not take up the entire screen. There is a 2" black gap between the apple window and the monitor. I have taken "overscan" off which allows the window to fit in the monitor area. With "overscan" on, it's too big and the apple window is too large for the monitor screen. I have tried all the other settings in the preferences menu. 720p is the only one that seems to work. Is there any way to make the apple screen fit the entire monitor area..or am I stuck with a 2" gap in the screen.

Actually, it just says 720p. There area a few that just have the resolution. ie: 1080i, 1080p, 720p, etc. I have tried all of them and none seem to completely fill the page correctly. With or without overscan on. Not sure what to do.

Huh, I do not have that tab that says "Arrangement" I only have "Display" and "Color". Why don't I have that option?

See post 2, item 2 - here.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
