I just want to know how to scale my display properly in order for the screen to fit in the tv (cheap RCA tv doesn't have real underscan/overscan feature in its settings).

Back in the days (before wayland and intel hd graphics) I had found a way to achieve this with with X and nvidia-settings (had a parameter in nvidia-settings: ViewPortOut)....I know some people were doing this kind of stuff with xrandr ..... see link

Both options are irrelevant now as I'm no more using nvidia driver and I've switched to Wayland/intel/Fedora 25.

What would be the new way of doing this kind of overscan / underscan correction using Wayland + Fedora 25 + here Intel HD Graphics from Kaby Lake intel processor.

Thanks !
