Overscan on Medion MD30169 television using AMD RX 580

I have overscan on the television I currently have to use as a monitor. I had the same issue when I used this monitor as a second screen for my laptop, but the integrated intel HD Graphics 4000 on this laptop allows me to compensate by scaling. Although it does blur the image a bit, that isn't an issue.


Currently, I need to use this screen for my custom build pc. At least for a few weeks, until I can get a decent monitor. In the mean time the overscan is really frustrating. But the worst part is, I can't seem to figure out how I can compensate for this by scaling using the AMD Radeon Settings Software.


The Tv monitor has no over/under scan options.
