I saw this too with KDE. It covered the screen after moving
down 2% by setting "xScanDisplacement=2". This may fix it
for you until Matttew's stuff goes in.

If there is a "0-7-to-0-8.sql" you need to run it thru
"mysql -u mythtv -p mythconverg < 0-7-to-0-8.sql" then
go to Setup->Recording to set a recording profile.
