OK, I will research how to do this. I don't believe I have edited
xorg.conf directly before. I just took a quick look and didn't see any
overscan settings mentioned. Are there commands to add, or do you mean
I should adjust the modeline (something else I haven't tried before).
Actually I am confused about what controls what here, because I had an
idea that a file called XF86Config-4 or something like that, defined how
the X system worked.

The desktop, and indeed myth's own GUI seems OK. It seems to be just
the actual video playback.
