    I’m very new to Raspberry PI, Linux and so on.

    When running on my HDTV through HDMI I get 5% black border. I expected a menu item letting me choose 1920×1080, or (1080p) as video resolution.

    How can I accomplish this?

    Thank you!

    You can also change the video resolution by pressing a key on the keyboard as your rom loads or js0 on your joypad.
