[mythtv-users] Correcting overscan in MythVideo/mplayer

The trouble seems to be with using the "-fs" option. No matter what I
scale the output to, the PVR350 overscan still cuts off the subtitles.
Is this just endemic with the PVR350 or am I doing something wrong
The only thing that doesn't cut off the subtitles that I could get to
work was the following:
mplayer -quiet -geometry 32%:50% -display :0 \
-vf scale=520:-2 -zoom -vo xv /var/video/mythvideo/Lunar_Bleach_58.avi
However, that leaves me with the window frame and a little clutter
from fluxbox to look at while I watch my videos. Would the expand
option be the correct way to blackout that area?
