[mythtv-users] Overscan

Is there any way of changing overscan on an NVidia 'chip' for just the 
Vertical (i.e. large horizontal black bar at top and bottom of the screen).
Using the nvidia-settings program the whole screen is 'zoomed', and I loose 
a lot of the sides to bring it to a suitable size.
The motherboard is an AMD CSIP version 1 motherboard from Gigabyte, VGA:
00:05.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation C51 PCI Express Bridge 
(rev a2)
The motherboard comes with a dongle to attach to the TVout port to split the 
output to composite, but has no usable controls. The output from the 
computer actually appears to have the grey bars on the TV out, but is not 
there on the LCD screen if I attach via a standard VGA lead.
Xorg has:
Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Device0"
        Driver      "nvidia"
        VendorName  "NVIDIA Corporation"
        BoardName   "GeForce 6150"
               Modes    "800x600"
Thanks in advance,
