    Hi all,

    I have an Intel NUC DN2820FYKH0 and installed Ubuntu 14.04 on it.

    I'm having difficulties with the display. The NUC is plugged via HDMI to a Samsung 32" TV. I've plugged many things in HDMI on this TV with no issues at all.

    I installed the 1.0.6 drivers (I think it's the latest issue).

    The 1920x1080 setting is the closest best match, however I can't see the top and left toolbars as the display is a bit bigger than the TV screen.

    The only other setting is 1280x1024 and that looks awful and distorted.

    My TV is set for 16:9 on that HDMI channel.

    Here's the info on the NUC's graphics adapter (charpter 1.5, page 20)


    How can I get more resolution options on this adapter ?

    Thanks !

    Hi - sounds like the TV is in underscan mode - if you're lucky the TV has an option to display exactly what it gets (TVs typically "throw away" a few rows+columns at the edges - traditional TV sources take this into account, computers are often a lot less forgiving, especially as they often put important UI elements there).

    If the TV doesn't have an "exact dispaly" or "no underscan" mode, then I'm less certain how to proceed: You might have more luck asking the question in the advanced graphics forum in that case.
