I've connected the mini to the TV (which is a full 1920x1080 HD set) - using mini-DVI to DVI-D to HDMI.

When in overscan I'm missing the edges of the screen - the menu bar at the top is outside the physical border of the screen but is usable (ie I can use the mouse in the border of the screen but can't see either the mouse or the top line of the menu). When it's not in overscan I'm using about three quarters of the screen.

Is there a way to make it fit the screen within the physical borders of the set (ie using overscan but keeping the borders of the screen within the physical boundaries of the set - or turning overscan off but expanding the screen out to the boundaries of the set).

It is, I think, a 100hz set but in display options I'm only seeing 60hz - is there a way to increase the refresh rate when used by the mini?

The screen fonts are also a bit blurry - any tips on who to improve visual acuity?

I haven't upgraded to 10.5.7 at this stage due to the problems people have been having with it - will do so once I do a time machine backup of the current setup.
