I agree, although I think overscan on digital TVs is kind of a weird
carry-over from the analog era. Analog TVs had overscan because the
CRT beam was hard to control at the edges of the picture, and because
the VBI had a lot of visually-distracting stuff in it. Overscan hid
the wavy edges, the VBI trash, and (on VCR signals) the head
switchover point. None of this really applies to a digital TV.
