I am a little confused here. Is this a general problem with all 8400GS
cards. The reason I ask is that I don't see an issue with mine. When I first
fired up my mythtv system on my Samsung 1080p panel, I noticed the overscan
as the gnome menu was off the top of the screen. i simply went into the meny
system of the tv and told it to "just scan". After doing that, I have the
full 1920x1080 image presented on the panel with an assumed 1:1 pixel
