Resolution to 40 inch TV

Hi,
I am very new to Screenly OSE but already like it !
My question is
I want to display a png image on the screen.
I made the slide in powerpoint on my mac and exported it to png with resolution settings 1920 x 1440
This works but it does not cover the whole TV screen. I get black space to the left and the right.
What am i doing wrong ?
Help appreciated!

Awesome!

This is incorrect. It needs to be 1920x1080. The only exception to this would be if you are using a Pi 4, but that’s not fully supported in Screenly OSE yet.

Sounds like an overscan issue. You can change this using raspi-config.

Hi,
I now have 2 black bars above and below the slide.
How can i correct that ?

Hi everybody,

I solved my problem !

Put this in /boot config.txt and reboot

disable_overscan=1
hdmi_group=1
hdmi_mode=16

and the top and bottom black bar are gone !
