I'm trying to set up a nice little android 7.1 system to attach to my TV using a HDMI cable though I'm having a bit of trouble with the resolution. I'm getting a black border around the screen - See the below image.
I've plugged in another laptop that has windows installed and noted down the resolution which is 1280x768. I've also found the corresponding vga values both 16 and 32. 1280x768x16 = 888 and 1280x768x32 = 889
When I add either of these to the menu.lst file I get a message on boot stating that I'm using an undefined video number.
I've typed scan to get the video modes available but there are no resolutions that match the aspect ratio of my screen. I've tested the ones listed but they still either don't take up the whole screen or match the aspect ratio.
The laptop I'm running this on is pretty old but with windows or any of the other Linux distros I've found I have no problem.
Is there any way of getting around this? Or am I going about this the wrong way?
Many thanks!!! :)
Let me know if I need to provide more info!
