It wasn't easy. In fact, nothing worked as described. Nothing.

I don't have any file named "xinitrc" or ".xinitrc" on my system. I am
thinking that is not how it is done in Mythbuntu...
I tried several other (non working) suggestions and finally found a post
I translated from German that said to modify /etc/gdm/Init/Default.
I added:"nvidia-settinge -a TVOverScan[TV-0]=12" just before "exit"
Is this a good way to do it???
btw, I didn't use the "nvidia-settings -l" option because
nvidia-settings was not saving the settings as it should. When I looked
at the file ".nvidia-settings-rc" nothing about TVOverScan was there. I
experimented and found a command that would do what I wanted and took to
finding a place to load it.

You are correct. I don't use the drivers loaded in the normal way
because my system will not boot if I do. I disabled them there (which
uninstalls them) and loaded them with evnyng. That works.
I think I am done unless I have problems because of modifying
