DSCS9 and display oversize issue

I’ve troubles displaying content like weather or clock because their dimension exceed region assigned and so is not fully showed.
The issues it happen also with default layout as you can see in the screenshot below were
text is not centered into the framework and not fully readable.
I’ve already checked both Display (small) and Text size (small).
If I put other setup the issue is worst.
Thank you for your help.

so finally I found a solution.
I’ve enabled “Developer options” menu entering in Android System settings and clicking several time on “Build number”.
Entering in “Developer options” there is a set named “Smallest width” that was set to 799 (~800).
Having a look on internet about its meaning, I found that it should represent the quantity of pixel related to the short side of your device.
Because DSCS9 is connected to a full HD TV, I’ve changed the setup to 1080.
So now it works and all the content inside layout regions are properly showed.

Hello again,
because I’m struggling with this topic for months I were so happy to had solved the issue for DSCS9 that I’ve immediately “exhumed” an Android device (X96 S400 - Android 10) bought from China few months ago that had the same issues.
I went directly in “Developer options” and with my regret that “Smallest width” option were not present.
I didn’t lost my confidence and so I’m starting googling and found that using ADB (Android Debug Bridge) is possible to change WM (Windows Manager) parameters: specifically I’ve changed two of them “size” and “density”: it’s not needed to root the device.
With size I’ve been able to fit the background into the whole screen, with the “density” I’ve solved the issue in topic: content in each region fitting the area and not are cut.
I hope it will help someone.
