Linux Universal Underscan

My monitor blew, and I got a new HD one at Costco.  With the standard Debian nouveau driver, it does the 1 inch underscan thing automatically.  That means I get a black border around my desktop.  It is impossible to fix this!  If I use the binary nvidia blob I can probably do it.

My Xbmc setup has over-underscan sliders so it works well for the big tv.  So for the monitor, right now it is best to buy a monitor a bit bigger than you need.  :(
