Same problem here. Have configured overscan in config.txt. That
works with the downstream kernel (and the BCM2708 fb driver). But as
you outlined already everything else (uboot, simplefb, vc4) ignores the
config.txt settings and I also havn't found any other way to configure
I have a samsung tv too, with one of my rpi2's connected. Walked
through the tv menus playing with the settings, but couldn't make things
So, no easy way out it seems?
Not off hand, sadly we seem to be having the early adopters problem on
a 4.5 year old device :-/
It's a pity all the EDID and similarly related monitor detection stuff
wasn't shared across drivers in a central location. Going from a
closed driver with a forked kernel we've never supported to a fully
open upstream doesn't give us a lot of room. I'm not a graphics
developer, nor really a kernel developers, so we're at a combination
mercy of upstream and not even the ability to dig into the
driver/firmware to workout what the other driver does.
Open to suggestions but I've pulled in all the upstream fixes I'm aware of.
