I used to do it with avidemux2, but it's too much work, and I've been
recording stuff with the garbage at the top. However, thanks to
overscan, no one can see it on playback except those playing it back on
a computer monitor. (Although those with real video players--like
xine--can zoom in so it's not visible. To do that in Windows Media
Player, I'm sure you have to buy the $50 video zoom plugin or something.)

It's actually present even when played directly to the TV. It's just
not shown because of overscan. The settings you're using to play the
recording allow you to see the whole picture (whereas your playback
settings may not).
