RaspBMC will not fit my screen
I have tried changing all screen setting and resolutions and re sizing but it is too bit for my screen.

It is only marginally too big so not a major issue but I can't see the corners properly.

Hi,

i found the screen overscan settings not to stick after a reboot. I just had to set the skin size to -4% in the appereance settings. That worked for me

You shoud check your monitor overscan settings or change the overscan values in the rpi config file. (config.txt in your /boot or fat partition, more information about that you can find on wikipedia of rpi)

RE: RaspBMC will not fit my screen
Do the overscan values in config.txt actually have any effect on the XBMC GUI? I thought they only affected the initial startup screens (up to and including the point where the Raspbmc logo appears). I'd be more than happy to be proven wrong because this overscan issue bugs me too!!

RE: RaspBMC will not fit my screen
You are using Settings > System > Video > Video Calibration within XBMC?

I've always had to do this for my TV no matter what system XBMC is running on and its never been an issue, just done it on the Pi and quite a few reboots just to test everything is starting up correctly and it holds the settings.

RE: RaspBMC will not fit my screen
I, and others, have had issues when setting video calibration (in that black bars would appear on the home page when returning when watching some films) ... the more effective solution for me was to set the zoom % on the System -> Appearance page

I have exactly the same TV and also found that the video size changes did not stick. Not tried these entries but will do so and post the results.

Thanks
