TV output black borders

    Hi,

    Currently have an old 2nd hand ATi Rage 128 Pro AGP card with composite
    PAL TV output which I use to watch movies on my TV at 800x600 (any
    higher and I just get a virtual desktop).

    Card has always had output problems, ie: black borders to the top and
    bottom.

    Would like a cheap upgrade (AGP, TV autosense, CVBS/SVideo out) which
    has the same or better quality without the border problem.

    Suggestions welcomed,

    Stu

    Even the lastest ATI card will produce black borders on CRT TV
    connected by S-video or composite.

    You can overscan it to get a full screen, but it will cut off too much
    image.
