Thanks Mike, I tried "203 153" (I was setting it in the Monitor section),
I still needed to adjust the same font sizes in the xml files or I
had the bottom of some fonts chopped off and MythWeather had the same
truncated line of text.
The setting I use came from a Via TV-Out howto (that is very good),
I imagine the settings are via/openchrome specific in this case.
